Description

hmmm. confused with this one, as there are white soredia (?) on the ridges, but it has odd looking red apothecia...

Scharnoff book says that apothecia are uncommon, so maybe it's P. anomala after all

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.
