Hi. This rock lichen seems like it's something I should know but maybe my 70-year-old brain isn't allowing the answer out. Anyhow, it's about softball sized and found on a rock in full sun in northeastern Pa. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

I have no clue as to which Fungi that might be but it sure is pretty! I didn't look through these so I'm not sure if the one in your photo is listed:

Lobaria amplissima is a similar looking foliose lichen. The brown areas only show during the fertile phase. I love rocks with lichen.
