I suspect this is some kind of a fungi not a lichen, but can't say further than that I'm afraid!

I think all the specimens in the photo are lichen.
There are apothecia visible on some of the thallii at the top centre right of the photograph and also bottom centre and bottom left.
Unfortunately its not possible to see details of the orange-stained patches but as its on rock rather than wood I think they are also lichen.
