Thanks DanielePralong! I have changed the spotting to Unidentified until I have time to look into this better! Very busy this week with Apple Festival at our store but maybe next week I can do more research into the Parmelia suggestion. Any help from others is most welcome!

Hi Kathleen! Please see this comment found on our FB announcement page: "Juan Carlos Zamora: The specimen of the photograph is not Hypogymnia physodes, but (probably) a species of Parmelia s.str. due to the not swollen lobes and the presence of pseudocyphellae in the upper surface". See what you think!
