More habitat details

Totally stumped by this one, though I'm probably missing something obvious!

It was on a fallen branch from a solitary Ash tree at 350m in a very exposed upland area, slightly protected by a small Hawthorn hedge.

Unlikely location but the trunk was covered with Degelia atlantica, Pannaria rubiginosa and Collema fasciculare!
