'Chewing gum' lichen for i.d.

Found on a paving slab in my back garden in northwest Suffolk. one of the 'chewing gum' lichens, perhaps Aspicilia contorta, or Lecanora muralis. Not much to go on. Any confirmation welcome. Thanks

? rust on Rhododdendron

Seen on Rhododendrons growing near the Suffolk coast, by a pathway between plantations and water meadows on 13th May. I don't have a microscope, so these are the only images available -- not sure whether enough for i.d.

mushroom for i.d. please

Only the one photo I'm afraid, taken on a family outing so no chance of more or of collecting it.
Growing in grassland by a lake in Thetford, Norfolk on 26th June
