I bet that there are (at least) more two in the first photo:

I agree with your identifications of F. caperata and of H. physodes, but in the first photo I also see a Punctelia sp., on the bottom left, and a Parmelia sp., at the bottom center. That’s the advantage of good photos.
I suppose that, following the rules, you should split this observation into (at least) two observations, saying at each one which one is at consideration.
