Usnea

Please forgive me for taking this back to genus level, but I don't think the photo is clear enough to confirm the species - eg are there soredia or isidia on the branches?

I have also struggled to photograph Usnea species well enough to show these fine details.

Examining the base for blackening is also a good first step towards arriving at a species.
