This lichen was found attache to what was most likely a conifer twig that had fallen to the ground. it has a typical green-white color, with hints of sky blue and gray on the topside. The underside is patched with brown, black and white patches. There is a central holdfast, and it is isidiate at the margins and on the topsides near the margins.
