Granite Rocks and Weird Lichen

More rocks, more Dartmoor but this time with some weird looking lichen.
I love the diagonal drama of this shot of a Sourton Tor on Dartmoor, pinning the sky.

On to the lichen.  It's like some alien microbe landed on a boulder after a passing ET sneezed on it, then left to mutate into something that really makes you go "euw".

Does anyone know what the name of this lichen is?  I have tried to identify it, but failed.
