thanks Lars! Is this spotting the Mealy Rosette Lichen?

Just yellow, Anna. It's a common Yellow Scale. The green-greyish is most likely a Mealy Rosette Lichen or a Dust Lichen which grows very often next to Yellow Scales).

yellowish green with gray patches? How would you describe it Lars? Is the gray a different species or just a different stage?
