In this case is the name

In this case is the name Cladonia chlorophaea being used as an aggregate species including a couple of others that can only identified by microscopic/chemical analysis, or is the one in my photo at some particularly distinctive stage in its development that means it is recognisable as Cladonia chlorophaea alone?
