Description

I saw a few of these along the coast in trees. This one is one a branch of a tree.

Shrubby and dense, flat blades, same yellowish green on both sides. The distinctive aspect was the soredia clumps (soralia) at the tips of the blades. The Scharnoff book references the "torn-open lobe tips".
