I half-agree with zaca

Looks like Hypogymnia physodes to me, as well. But I think the other one is Pseudevernia furfuracea. (Remember that Stereocaulon grows strictly on rock or soil / moss.)

I thought the one to be a Hypogymnia physodes

It is very common.
Unfortunately I do have these three photos only.
Thanks for ID though!

There are two species involved. In the center of the first two photos seems to be a Stereocaulon. For the species I have no idea, since I’m not familiar with this genus. In the last picture and laterally in the first two seems to me a Hypogymnia (perhaps H. physodes), but it would desirable to see the lower face to be more secure.
