“Specimen has characters of both A.cinerea and A.caesiocinerea: thallus K+y to or. to r.; <8 spores per ascus; paraphyses not moniliform.”

Finally, I was able to grab a decent piece of a specimen. KOH test showed yellowing when applied to upper cortex. From Thomson keys, it must be Aspicilia laevata, but that species is much darker, and has different looking apothecia.
