I agree, the orange looks like Caloplaca

The white streak makes for a striking effect. Is it from scarring of the rock somehow? Maybe another block of tallus fell and slid along that edge recently?

What is this?

The orange part looks like the lichen Caloplaca- but what nature did the white part have? Was it part of the lichen or a fungus growing on the lichen? It looks like paint.
