Sure looks like it’s growing on a fallen branch to me…

Of course, in the north (and Pennsylvania qualifies as “north” in this context) F. caperata frequently “steps down” onto rock. The pustules on this specimen are too abundantly sorediate to possibly be more-typically saxicolous F. baltimorensis. So whatever the substrate, I would stand by F. caperata.
