Description:

Not sure what these are, seem to be growing from the squamules, C.caespiticia is present near by but these podetia were much taller (5mm), different in shape and texture. Any comments will be great, thanks.

Perhaps

this might be Cladonia digitata, with the podetia arising from the surfaces of very lage, green, basal squamules. However, the podetia are too immature to have developed diagnostic features.
