Thanks for the links Arlanda! I'm not entirely sure as the color doesn't match either though maybe the color changes depending on conditions & age?

I dont know, KarenL, maybe yours is more yellow-greenish. Have a look at Psilolechia lucida (http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/Psilol...) or Chrysothrix chlorina (http://www.lichens.lastdragon.org/Chryso...)
