I'd heard there were cool lichens up on San Bruno, so I was pleasantly unsurprised to find a new-to-me lichen up there. This definitely doesn't have the hairy lobe tips of L. hallii, so I feel pretty good about the ID. There is one record of this species from Marin, but it seems like it might be unusual around the Bay.

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.
