Hi Bear, the brown crustose

Hi Bear, the brown crustose lichen is a Verrucaria, probably Verrucaria nigrescens. The small whitish foliose ones are probably Physcia adscendens (P. tenella is similar but usually found on trees and wood).

The yellow crustose ones are either Caloplaca or Candelariella - need to test with K to tell.
