Description

Pale green with apothecia with brown centers. Dark back surface, black interior of tube, K+ yellow/mint green, KC+ red..

Per kueda: "According to CNALH, H. heterophylla should be dark on the inside. Most of our Hypogymnia are H. imshaugii, which is white on the inside"

so is this H. heterophylla (seaside bone lichen)? But Scharnoff book says cortex spot tests should be K+ yellow (OK) and KC- (but I got red)
