Yes, this looks right for A. cinerea

It has the characteristic multi-colored apothecia, which darken toward and bleed up the inside edge of the rims, and have a distinctive “smoky” cast. At least the first photo shows this pretty well. The close-up show mostly pitch-black apothecia. It is not unusual for L. cenisia to be highly variable, though, so those black apothecia don’t necessarily rule out the name. This is just a difficult taxon.
