Description

On moss, on oak tree (just above the main tree line for the coast redwoods) papery feel, thin and dry (although it was almost above my reach coming down the Mt. Ellen Summit trail)

could this be lobaria pulmonaria or lettice lichen (?) If so, it's my first time seeing this.

The photo with the light green color is accurate

Description from Wikipedia

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.
