The specimen was scraped off the rock in pieces, and contains none of the small, greyish apothecia in the image. So I am unable to get spores. The lichen is squamulose, epruinose, and appears to have a black hypothallus in the image. These characters rule out Cladonia, Hypocenomyce, and Squamarina that I know of. I am unable to determine the photobiont but what little I can see does not look like cyanobacteria. Some of the images do not contain the small grey apothecia so they may not be part of the lichen. One close-up image does show greener squamules like Cladonia or Hypocenomyce, but the latter does not grow on rock that I know of.
