The lobes of this are wider and flatter than anything we call Xanthoria elegans = Rusavskia elegans in North America (although, admittedly, a highly variable species!). It looks closest to X. parietina to me, but this is a very strange place to find X. parietina. I’m still translating the Russian literature on this group, so I’m not sure how the names are applied in your area. And there are quite a few names I don’t recognize (e.g., microspora, steineri, musicola).
