The foliose lichen is

The foliose lichen is Flavoparmelia caperata and there is another foliose one to the left of it that could be Parmelia sulcata.

No fruticose species but there are two different Cladonia's - Cladonia coniocraea with very narrow podetia and in the background one of the 'pixie-cup' Cladonia species.
