I found a photograph of the rock, it was on the bottom right one. but i guess it's too far away to see anything at least you have a better idea of the habitat

I want to say Lecanora sp... When it comes to lichens, try to note the habitat. Was it on rock, on a tree (type of tree if known), on the ground? and get a zoomed out photo of the entire structure. You actually photographed the apothecia, or the fruiting bodies, and the rest of the lichen is underneath, which in your photos is the gray crust.
