Or Lobaria pulmonaria?
Found in Big leaf Maple leaf litter. In area dominated by these trees. Several of these lichens were found on the ground. I did not see any up in the trees though. This was shortly after a wind storm.
Lobaria is a genus of lichens commonly known as "lungwort" or "lung moss" as their physical shape somewhat resembles a lung. Lobaria species are unusual in that they have a three-part symbiosis, containing a fungus, an alga and a cyanobacterium, the presence of the cyanobacterium allowing nitrogen fixation.
