I think the bit about the yellow soredia in the Hinds & Hinds key is probably wrong, given their range notes in P. fraudans.

Description

This lichen is loosely attached to a fallen Douglas-fir. It is a pale blue-green. It is very fragile to the touch in the cold, parts of it crumbles. It has a papery feel to it. I'm not exactly sure of what type of lichen this is.
