Without clear apothecia it’s a coin toss

White spots in photo 3 could be overexposed apothecia… or random dirt!

those white specks in photo 3 are apothecia, I only see Trentepohlia here, but it sounds like you’re saying, Jason, that the fungus is almost certainly there, apothecia or none, yes?

Looks like Coenogonium

I’ve seen something that looks exactly the same on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. It’s 99% composed of filaments of Trentepohlia. If lichenized, it looks exactly the same, but the filaments are encased with very thin fungal hyphae visible only under compound microscope, and it occasionally grows tiny pink/orange apothecia, just scattered throughout the tuft of green algae.
