Odds are it’s in the Physciaceae but that’s not so helpful!

Regretfully, no.

It looks like no fungus I have seen.

It looks more like some sawdust which got caught on the bark, and then is starting to grow mycelium. But there is no visible fungus fruiting here.

Actually, would you be able to identify the fungi? I uploaded a close up of it.

I am not sure what kind of wood it is, but I am trying to identify the green lichens present.

Several things here. Hard to tell which one you are observing.

There are several small green lichens present, as well as some young green moss. There is one larger, paper-like parchment fungus (I think) here as well. The wood is curious because there are sections that look reddish. Do you know what kind of wood this is?
