Rosette type lichen on another lime tree, slightly better photo than previous ones. grey-green fan like lobes with centre of thallus covered by soredia. Seems to be common in urban areas? nutrient loving? Second, third and fourth lichens from nearby sycamore tree - appear to be same lichen species.

Lichen identification

Hi Alan, apologies for the poor photos. Unfortunately I have only basic camera and try to get close-ups using magnifying glass. I do very much appreciate your time and assistance. I will be more judicious in photos I upload in the future.
