are always very wellcome and I learn a lot from them. Please, always give me your opinion and share your doubts.
Looking at photos of both on-line, I completely agree with you, both vis-a-vis spores and overall morphology. Despite what the British Flora claims about L. cochleatum, it is very much crinkly, and its apothecia are obviously stipitate. Don’t believe everything you read!
27a. Thallus pale grey, lobes very thin, tissue-like, wavy, crinkled, uneven; apothecia very rare, top-shaped with short, pale stalks . . . L. britannicum
27b. Thallus dark grey, to greenish blue, lobes raher thick, upper surface clearly striate; apothecia frequent, ± sessile . . . L. cochleatum
Yours looks pale, thin, crinkly, not striate, apothecia admittedly common but stipitate not sessile.
