According to CNALH we have for Cladonia multiformis the following (and I quote) “World distribution: North America, mainly eastern, extending along Rocky Mountains south to Coahuila, Mexico, but not to the west coast, essentially boreal”.
I must confess that when I post the observation I had still doubts about the genus, because I was not able to find anything similar in the european websites, though the form of apothecia are quite similar to other Cladonia I observed before (e.g. C. ramulosa). My doubts were more related with the existence of Cladonia spp. with the slit wide open branches that, as you point out, C. multiformis possesses. Are there any others with this kind of features?
There’s a richly-branched form just like this where the branches are slit wide open and with small brown apothecia often at the tips. It is entirely corticate, has fumarprotocetraric acid, and often at least some squamules on the branches and at the base.
