This looks like it might have red apothecia/pycnidia at the tips

In C. cenotea the cups are open to the interior of the podetia, with big gaping holes, and the margins usually curl inward distinctively.

This looks more like one of the usnic ones. Sometimes they don’t really look very yellowish, but it’s not always obvious… Anyway, C. deformis looks like the best candidate – tall, powdery soredia all over, but not deformed enough to be C. sulphurina. Just a suggestion, hardly confident.
