Description: Original observation #50140 (Mushroom Observer)
Occurrence Remarks: This keys to L. cyanescens except for the color. Lobes smooth, isidiate. An alternative is L. millegranum, but I'm not comfortable with that name either. Any help would be appreciated. I can also send specimens upon request. This cyanolichen is common in shaded forests both on rock and bark.
