Found on the floor of a mixed plantation (pictures 1 and 4) and apparently growing on a dead spruce or possibly larch twig. The lobes are greenish-grey on the upper surface, looking white where drier, but mostly black beneath; they are forked, flat and rather strap-like, curled inward at the edges and covered in isidia appearing not unlike short fur. No fruiting bodies detected.

I read that Pseudoevernia furfuracea is actually foliose, but although this looks fruticose to me I’m reasonably sure that this is what it is.
