I’d start with Rinodina

Definitely need to see the spores. Rinodina has gray-brown septate spores, and the shape of the inner cell-walls at various stages of development are critically important. I just learned that if you view the spores in Lugol’s or Meltzer’s solution, it “clears” the spores and makes it much easier to see the shape. If the spores are colorless or non-septate, you’ve got Lecania or Lecanora some other genus.
