I see that these have something black around the apothecial margin (probably hairs or “eyelashes” as in Scutellinia). The images I’m able to dig up of Phaeohelotium show semi-translucent discs which are completely naked at the margin.

In order to begin confidently ID these little ascos, at least seeing the detail of an individual fruiting body is required, and microscopy is ideal.
