The two common species are this (greenish to grayish apothecia), and R. chrysoleuca with orangish apothecia. Both are mounded things that are actually only attached at a single point underneath and therefore (relatively) easy to remove from the rock with just a pocket knife. The third somewhat-common species is R. subdiscrepans but it is broadly attached like a crust. The first two species should both be common where you are on granitic rocks.
