There seem to be 4 lichens lurking here - 2 crustose and 2 foliose. I can only think that the main foliose lichen is Xanthoria parietina clothed in green due to dampness (?) or algae. I'm not sure about the others.

'Grey crustose lichen with black spots'

The grey crustose lichen with the black apothecium could be Lecidella elaeochroma.
