.. in the notes that was also my impression about the classification, but I could be being influenced by other recent observations of specimens of the same genus. Thanks, Jason, for confirmation.

I would vote for P. caesia this time. It has the typical “look and feel” of the species: strongly convex distinct lobes with a roughened appearance, piles of darkened soredia (usually bluish, but grey is not unusual in specimens exposed to direct sun) sitting on lobe surface.
