P. crinitum “group”

There are a few Parmotrema with abundant long well-developed isidia (usually with cilia at the tips of at least some): P. crinitum (medulla K+y), P. internexum (also K+y but smaller? and allegedly without cilia), P. mellissii (K- C+r and with disintigrating isidia). I’ve seen crinitum a few times, and maybe mellissii once.
