See 'Necropolis 10'

I have written a longer comment there about lichens on Glasgow gravestones commonly being poorly developed. Evidently a selection of three or more crustose species here, but probably not certainly identifiable.

Pin-shap close-ups are, however, necessary. (And not at all easy to obtain, I know only too well).

Again, some of this might well be Porpidia tuberculosa.
