You're probably correct but

You're probably correct but with Peltigera's it helps/enables accurate identification if there's also a photograph showing the undersurface with the rhizines and veins

Thanks for the tip Jenny.

Thanks for the tip Jenny. (And for the earlier advice on basic reagents.)

I'm afraid this was the only image I took of this specimen, but I'm sure I'll be visiting the site again so I'll see if I can re-find it.
