Description:

Not sure if my suggestion is correct as seems very dark for that species but I am not certain if these are just 'stained' in some way. Approx 15mm tall, found within damp moorland. Thanks.

Variation

Cladonia chlorophaea is really an aggregate of species, not easily distinguished without chemical analysis. So there is quite an amount of variation that goes under this name.
