Used references: Prelim. keys to Ways of Enlichenment: from photo keys to either P. alnophila (aka. P. aipolia var. alnophila) or P. biziana, but the latter has much broader lobes and is more southerly (according to Brodo’s Lichens of N. Amer.).
Based on chemical features: Expect this to have K+y medulla (P. biziana would be K-).
