You should post these

You should post these separately, otherwise the ID system gets messy. The fourth pic (orange) is not a lichen, but the alga Trentepohlia.

The sixth is a liverwort.

If you're re-posting these could you give details of what the fifth image was on (orange discs with white margins) as there are several similar species but either on rocks or trees.
