Recognized by sight: Lichens are a combination of fungus and algae. They are some of the oldest life forms on earth. For each one, we need to see both sides to tell more. And also need to have photos as close as possible to see features that can name them.

Recognized by sight: just an educated guess, based on the tiny narrow lobes and grayish color, Physcia stellaris and P. aipolia are both very common, but need to see much better resolution images and maybe KOH test on cortex and medulla to be sure, Phaeophyscia is another option

Can you further identify the genus/species of the fungi? If you need more pictures, I would be happy to provide more. Thank you!
