Gotta be Cladina

Burgaz & Raggio. 2007. Cladoniaceae of Navarino Island. Mycotaxon 99: 103-116. list these species of Cladonia:

C. arbuscula / C. mitis (now synonyms)
C. rangiferina

Piece of cake! Just do K test on tips.

I don’t recognize these species, not sure if they are cladinas:

C. laevigata?
C. sarmentosa?
C. subchordalis?
C. ustulata?

(Dude! Check it out, there is a species called — I’m not making this up! — Cladonia subsubulata. Who says lichenologists don’t have a sense of humor!)
