Sterile...

or not far off, so very difficult to say (difficult from photos alone even when fertile). I think L. elaeochroma is a good bet, but not a safe one.

Thanks Nigel, I think this

Thanks Nigel, I think this level of identification is great and the difficulties of ID for lichens is why I am trying ispot. You have probably noted that the provisional ID's I put forward, I have little confidence in, so I do appreciate the efforts you and others make to help with these things.

Hmmmm

Very warted for Lecidella elaeochroma. I am far from convinced. Best just leave it as an immature lichen.
