It doesn’t (or isn’t supposed to :) form those nice handsome compact heads like C. evansii. It certainly doesn’t anywhere else in its range. But when growing with C. evansii, you can occasionally find green ones with compact heads. T. Goward suggested to me once that these might be varieties of C. evansii with usnic acid. Regardless, classic C. evansii is unmistakable. My favorite of the old Cladina species for sure. :)
You are right. There were definitely 2 colors. A light green and white variety. Never occurred to me that they could be two kind. They were so intermingled with each other.
