Hardly your most photogenic lichen out there. Habitat and overall look is right for Trapeliopsis flexuosa. If you get a C+ test (very fleeting, weak and hard to see, be warned), then I’d say all doubts are removed.

I totally overlooked it, but my camera took pains of taking photos of it :-) Now I have to go back and take a sample :-(
