    Looks almost like a seaweed.

    Definitely does! I love the way some lichens and mushrooms look like ocean creatures, as if we are all just living in a temporary intertidal.

    Yours look a fair bit like Umbilicaria mammulata: Can you see tiny hairs/rhizines on the underside?
    Not a species found in my region.
