Cladonia ochrochlora Cladoniaceae
Cladonia ochrochlora

Primary thallus squamulose, secondary thallus fruticose.
Chemical results: K-, P+ red, UV-

Usually on rotting tree stumps, occasional on peaty heathland

Similar to Cladonia coniocraea but podetia more robust, finely sorediate and corticate at base. Small terminal scyphii are slightly wider than podetia, +/- corticate inside cups.

Possibly just a well-developed morph of Cladonia coniocraea
