Farnoldia jurana...

seems very reasonable (nice find!), but I don't know it and would want to look inside to be certain it isn't Clauzadea. I'll look out for the boulder next time I'm there.

Nice find

I have never seen Farnoldia jurana, so won't add an agreement, but it looks good for that species.

I might be looking for it there too!
