Thank you for looking at Lichen(b) and confirming identity.
Pale whiskers with dark ends are present around the edges of the lobes.

Cilia

Yes - P. adscendens and P. leptalea also have these whiskers (cilia). Other features worth noting here are the pycnidia (black dots) and soralia (granular structures at the ends of the lobes).
