Is this on rock or on compactified soil?

Due to the color and form of apothecia, there is always the possibility of this to be Caloplaca. This could be simply confirmed with the spot tests. If there is a K- or K+ reaction not purple, then more probably it is a Trapelia. T. coartacta has a C+ red reaction and can be similar (see, e.g. the photos in observation 86132).
