I don’t even know if this is lichen! I photographed it on a rock, presumably limestone, at Blevins Gap Land Trust Preserve, Huntsville, Alabama. Rich woods, very rocky, fairly moist.

Probably is a lichen

There are some verrucarioid (Verrucaria s. lato) which have perithecia immersed in tiny hollowed-out holes in the surface of limestone. I didn’t know that any were known from the area except for one or two extremely rare species (whose names naturally escape me at the moment!) but I so rarely get to collect on limestone that my experience is of limited value.
