Lichen Community on a Stick

I know its not a bryophyte, but I'm honestly more interested in lichens, and I ended up spotting this branch with at least five different ones, ranging from crustose to fruticose.  I grabbed it primarily because of the crustose apothecia (the small orangish discs).  Curious to compare lichen ascospores to what I remember about your 'normal', unlichenized ascomycete spores.
