The yellow lichen could be

The yellow lichen could be Caloplaca flavescens which is placodioid (crustose with lobed margins).
Brownish-black one is probably a Verrucaria.

Were the rocks limestone as if so the whitish-grey one could also be a Verrucaria sp.

Thanks Jenny,
The rock was limestone, so I'll look into Verrucarias.
