Notice that the green is only in the cracks

I bet the thallus, such as it is – it’s scarcely a few hyphal cells thick – just breaks down where the bark cracks, releasing the algae. The “true” thallus can be seen in the vaguely shiny smooth grayish bits around the apothecia.

Arctonia punctiformis?

Looks kind of like Arthonia punctiformis, but with green thallus.
