Used references: Index Fungorum says that Xanthoria and Caloplaca are both in the family Teloschistaceae, so I’m going with that for now.

I just had a little travel camera and I didn’t want to even think about trying to get some of it home :-). I was just pleased to see lichens at all given the air quality around Beijing.

I’d guess Xanthoria or Caloplaca
