Lichen identification

I am finding Lichen ID very difficult. Have seen a lot of the lichen in your photo on rotting wood, but have had been unable to distinguish it. Flavoparmelia caperata looks to be a much paler colour (I looked on the Natural history museum guide to lichens on twigs and the encyclopaedia of life) Still, I cant offer an alternative as to what it is.
