Found along side a hiking trail in the Pacific Northwest. Entire plant was about 1 ft dia. Spines on underside of leaves that were not prickly or stiff. Plant had abundant small orange (guessing flowers). Already made it through a few frosty days. The location found is mostly rain forest.
I found the same exact plant at Leadbetter Point in Washington on 1/14/21. Trying to ID.

Maybe a pelt lichen species in the Peltigera genus? According to sources the orange parts are ‘apothecia'(spore bearing structure). Sorry, I can’t tell which species this is. Check out some of the species from these included links. Best wishes! Link for fog pelt lichen (Petigera neopolydactyla). Click on images to enlarge. https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/81494625
