Hi Ingrid3! I would like to invite you to join my new mission Florida's Lichens and add your spottings: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/2164... Lovely spotting by the way. I think you actually photographed 3 (maybe even 4) species here. One looks like black dots, the other is near the center and has very pale peach-colored apothecia (disk-shaped structures) and then there is the lichen that you seem to be focusing on. I think it is possible that the other gray-green lichen that is more spindly on the right side is another species as well (but I may be wrong about that). Anyways, awesome spotting!
