Thank You very much! This kind probably dominates in semishadow environment here. The kind of observation 279846 dominates in shadow of this location on stones (2 bolders moved to my balcony). I will try to check both with KOH as obtain it.

It has just over 30 species of Aspicilia listed!

This is an extremely diverse and difficult genus in some parts of the world

It is possible, given the overall appearance and K+r reaction, that this is Aspicilia cinerea, a very widespread and common species . But I would personally need to verify the spore size and conidia size before being confident.

Thank You! I got some new data lately.

This is very common kind. I got reddish-brown colouring (cutting) after NaOH for 3 similar samples.
