Flavopunctelia Flavopuncelia soredica

Their name alludes to the pale specks of pseudocyphellae occurring over the lower surface of the species. Large stratified foliose lichens, corticate above and below, sorediate or isidiate or not, lobes loosely attached, short to somewhat elongate, averaging to 6–20 (–30) mm wide, thin. Upper surface greyish or brownish, smooth or reticulate. Infrequent over trees and shrubs in open coastal forests at lower elevations, also rare in intermontane old-growth forests, from Alaska to Oregon.
