It looks too thick and shiny for Sticta. I wonder what else it might be. Given the Lobaria and what looks like Anaptychia on the same rock, it wouldn’t be unusual to find another cyanolichen there, too. Do you see any of the “paw”-like apothecia underneath lobe tips? That would be a sure give-away that it’s Nephroma.
