Description:

I think this blueish/brownish grey lichen is possibly Peltigera membranacea, although I believe Peltigera praetextata is quite similar. I don't know much about lichens though, so I'd really appreciate confirmation or correction from any experts.

Superb photos...

clear enough to show the bottle-brush nature of the rhizines in this species. Stunning.

Thanks Nigel

They were actually taken in a bit of a rush, so I'm very glad you were able pick out the detail needed for an identification.
