Genus Acarospora {Cobblestone Lichens}, perhaps A. fuscata; on stone

PS: It's acutlly quite a legendary boulder. It even has its onw name, De Reuselse Kei (or The Boulder of Reusel; Reusel is a small town in the south of the Netherlands). The very fact that this boulder was found in the area is pretty unique, and now it's on a level of 'geological monument'. You can read more about this famous bouder and its dramtic history here (the article is in Dutch but Google Translate will tell you the main points good enough). The lichen (seen in the middle of the stone) is on its Western side.
