for helping to name this striking lichen from the alpine zone of the Canadian Rockies. The rocks they were growing on contain marine fossils, so the name calcarea has a special appeal.

A. calcarea looks very promising. Spectacular photos!

Did you considered Aspicilia?

In the group: A. calcarea, A. cinerea and A. contorta you can find specimens very similar to yours (see here). I hope this help.
