I suspect this could be Hypogymnia physodes, but it's not easy to tell.

 

Any thoughts? TIA.

Just piggy backing here... I had thought that this was Methuselah’s Beard, but may be wrong since I know very little about flora. If not, what is it?

Ok, thanks, that helps to identify it as Usnea (which Methuselahs Beard is) but getting further than that is very tricky.

Perhaps reindeer lichen (Cladonia rangiferina) - had the same query myself a year or so ago ...?

Thanks guys, Evernia seems to be the closest match I can find.
