Oh yes!

I see you have added colour correction too. This is now a very good representation of the species - showing both the apothecia and the thallus details very well.

It is quite common in upland Scotland, but I have yet to see it fruiting. I am jealous (of seeing it, and the photograph).

there was loads of it

there was loads of it fruiting but only in a concentrated area of a couple of sq metres, the rest of the quite large area of the species had no fruiting bodies.
