Notes: The general looking remind that of a Squamarina, but other not so much, namely:
- thallus non pruinose;
- margin of older apothecia almost excluded;
- marginal lobes less radiating type;
- withish underside;
- the spores (at least the few I was able to see) are 1-septate.
The alternative to Squamarina in the general key of British Flora is Solenopsora, but the species in this genus with 1 septate spores are: Solenopsora holophaea, which has a red-brown thallus when dry as my specimens, and Solenopsora vulturiensis (the spores of this species are 0-1 septate) with bigger spores.
So, this is a kind of puzzle and maybe there is some other genera to consider.
