This is uncommon, but I have seen it once before in these mountains.
Squamulose lichen, in crevice of granite.
THALLUS: large squamules, deep rich brown to lighter greenish brown, margin white and dusty, lower surface dusty white, K-, C- surface (apparent)
MEDULLA: white, C+ red
APOTHECIA: very rare, laminal?, dome-shaped, black, epihyenium dark brown and K+ wine red (faint)
(Distinguished by the large brown squamules with dusty-white margins.)
