Xanthoparmelia chlorochroa

According to Sharon Eversman, Bozeman Montana, the scientific name is a blanket name for a complex comprising several morphologically-similar but chemically-different species. Given its elevation, X. chlorochroa is probably the species. In spite of the seemingly negative reputation of this lichen, it can co-occur with a high degree of native plant cover.
