Green, squamulose thalli on spoil heap at disused lead mine, densely covered in pale, discoid schizidia. Black ascomata seemingly epiphytic/parasitic on the thallus in the background of pic 1 (I have a sample I will attempt!?! to ID at some point). Pic 2 shows apothecia developing, which are reportedly rare.

Edit: 6 new images appended. These might later be moved to a new observation.
