First photo looks different

While I can see that the lichens in the later photos are well branched, thin and rounded, the first photo shows what may be a different species (as you suggest is possible) - definitely thicker and more flattened lobes. My first guess would be one of the Ramalinas, but it would be worth having a closer look before making any decisions.
