fungus size

Do you have an estimate for the size of one of the orange discs?

Melastiza?

I wondered about this one as well, but I'm not sure how to separate it from others such as Anthracobia, Scutellinia and other superficially similar small orange fungi.

Unknown fungi

I've done a bit more research on this one and it's Cheilymenia granulata, common on cowpats and has granular edges, hense granulata
