Did you consider C. crispata?

C. furcata can definitely have gaping open axils, but I would expect it to be slenderer and more branched. C. crispata should be a bit milkier/yellowish from usnic acid, C. furcata a bit more brownish/grayish from fumarprotocetraric acid. There is a coastal variety, C. crispata var. cetrariiformis, with non-flaring cups and axils that looks a lot like this, I think. Worth considering, at least.
