Not sure about this at present. My first though was that it was indeed C. ramulosa, but it looks like it might be sorediate. Maybe I'll come back to this after comparing it with some C. ramulosa material I have tucked away. It may just be C. chlorophaea.

Cladonia subulata and probably C. squamosa (out of focus) also present.

[Interestingly, but only to me, I went to check my web page on C. ramulosa and found I don't have one! This will be remedied. Sometime ...]
