antlered lichen from sand dune

Pale grey, branching, very brittle fruticose lichen. The 'branches' are hollow. It was growing directly on the sand of a semi-fixed dune on the south coast of Jersey.

Cladonia lichen

Thank you for the correction. I can see the furcate tips and I think I can see the green algae with the aid of magnification. I'm don't know what the basal squamules means - should I be seeing them?
