Species with which Foliose lichen (Xanthoria parietina) interacts

The grey lichen

Just to be clear, it is the orange-yellow lichen that is Xanthoria parietina.

The more abundant grey lichen is almost certainly Physcia tenella, which commonly grows with Xanthoria spp. in areas of nitrogen enrichment, but the photo is from too far away to show this clearly.
