Could be young form of the same

I find it a difficult group, even with good literature. I would definitely say it is Ramalina. It looks like it doesn’t have soredia (lack of apothecia might just mean that it’s young). It has flattened branches. The quality of the warts, ridges, striations, etc. is important to make the final determination, I’m no help there, sorry.
