I've been through a LOT of lichen lately, but I've never seen anything like this. There was something like it on YT, they were calling it some kind of amoeba, and it does resemble that, but I don't know....

I believe it might be a trichome.
Here is a link on trichomes and their curious vocabulary: http://www.backyardnature.net/hairs.htm
Another link with similar looking oak trichomes: https://www2.palomar.edu/users/warmstrong/hybrids2.htm

Hmm, I'm with you 75' - looks very much like a trichome to me also.
