I added some recent photos, but not yet separated the two species.
Question? Where to store the photo, MO GRP 02 2014-03-04 DSC06922.
I think: GRP 01 = Lecanora, and GRP 02 = Ochrolechia or Pertusaria.

Strongly agree Elsa and Zaca.

I’ll make new pictures and two separate observations. Thank you very much for your comments and do not hesitate to ask me for issues particular requirements.

Yes you’re right

Zaca, it’s a mixed collection for sure. I think Galla put the photos just to know. Maybe he can separe them in more observations later.

Mixed collection!

The first and the fourth photos clearly shows a Lecanora sp., and I think that’s what Elsa (pinknailsgirl) referred in her notes. The other photos display other lichens, namely the one with a big tallus, which in my opinion is not a Lecanora sp.; This one looks more like a Pertusaria sp. to me and I wouldn’t be surprised if it reveals to be P. velata, but this is just a guess and chemistry and/or microscopy will be needed to say something more precise.
