Description:

Found this lichen on north facing side of Lime tree in urban residential area. In the second photo I wet the lobes and they turned green. It looks like a punctelia subrudecta, but I wasn't sure (did not seem to have dark margins and was hard to look under lobes, but soralia appeared to be on tips of lobes). Perhaps it could be flavoparmelia caperata of parmotrema perlatum?.
