No specimen available

Looks much like a Scutellinia scutellata (or at least the super-common one you see along trails everywhere), but this is larger, more closely appressed, with smaller “eyelashes”, typically grows on rock under water in flowing mountain streams (sometimes the water level recedes and leaves them above water).
