Habitat: Mima Mounds, intermound area (short grass prairie).
Stalks covered in tiny squamules appear to be growing out of a leafy basal squamule, thus assuming those are podetia and this is a Cladonia…

But they are awfully small, it looks like it has soredia(?) on the podetia, and C. cariosa should have distinctive tiny shell-like round squamules. (Screwy squamules on a small specimen by itself wouldn’t be a show-stopper, though.) An important test for cariosa is the K+y cortex, but I find it very difficult to read, personally, especially on a small specimen.
