I don’t think it’s possible to determine even the genus without more details about the anatomy of the lirelloid apothecia or the type of spores.

Spores brown:
..Exciple fully carbonized – Platygramme, Phaeographis (part)
..Exciple not carbonized below – Leiorreuma, Phaeographis (part)
Spores colorless:
..Paraphyses tips ornamented:
….Exciple carbonized – Carbacanthographis
….Exciple not carbonized – Acanthothecis
..Paraphyses tips distinctly branched and reticulate – Diorgyma
..Paraphyses mostly simple
….Exciple carbonized – Graphis, Dyplolabia(?)
….Exciple not carbonized – Fissurina, Platythecium, Thalloloma
