Recognized by sight: I would be conservative with Bryoria without chemistry. Color is a good guide to a point. This one for example contains both olive (left side) and reddish hues (center to right side), suggesting a mixture of Bryoria fuscescens (or B. glabra) and Nodobryoria oregana. But it’s impossible to rule out B. fremontii based on this photo. Mixtures, incidentally, are extremely common. One expert claimed that every single specimen he examined was a mixture of at least two species!
