I agree this is probably a crustose lichen

Wish I could suggest a genus. Looks remarkably like a Myriotrema or related genus, but I thought those were all southeastern / tropical.

thanks Andreas. The name was a shot in the dark…

and based purely on those circular fruit bodies.

Not a Mollisia, sorry ….

This is no Mollisia, but something living inside the wood. May be a Ostropales or a Karstenia or similar thing. No Helotiales!
