In addition to the usual Lecidea (L. tessellata?), Porpidia (?), Rhizocarpon (?) and Buellia spuria don’t forget Lecanora oreinoides. (The black prothallus may be important, I think that may rule out the Lecanora.)

I tried to digest and put together a compilation of different thalli – ones without apothecia, with few apothecia, and lots of apothecia – trying to weed out other species to the best of my ability.
