Hey Kate - I don' think this species ID is correct. Check the Lichen book I put down at the POE room, and also change the location ID - we were at Pack Forest, not Packwood forest. Cheers

Lichens are tough! This genus is distinguished by the inflated thallus and jet black lower surface.

Nice photo! Had to scan around to see the hooded granular soredia that distinguish this species, but the photo was clear enough.
