Found on ground surrounded by Noble fir. Other specimens found on branches blown off of Noble fir, or on dead Noble fir branches.

Recognized by sight: Need to cut it open (near center, not at tips) to see color inside: if white then H. imshaugii (almost certainly is this), if black then H. apinnata (a little too far from coast to be likely). If there were any piles of powdery soredia, or if it had “constrictions”, then it would be something altogether different.
