Not fungus but lichen.
There are several different species, the foliose one in the centre is Parmotrema perlatum, greenish foliose below is a Flavoparmelia, probably F. caperata.

Upper right the brown apothecia (jam tart-like fruiting bodies) are probably Lecanora chlarotera.
Below the Parmotrema the black dots on the light greenish-grey background are probably Lecidella elaeochroma.
