Not sure if this is P. caesia or P. tenella so any comments will be great, thanks. Found growing on a Sycamore. Only this small area had developed apothecia.

I think you're right...

that more than one species is involved, with the convex, dark-flecked soralia of P. caesia towards the top right, and P. adscendens (possibly also P. tenella) elsewhere.
