There are a lot of cladonia sp. which are very difficult to separate from each other without chemistry. I´m not an expert on this genus and to my knowledge I found only once C. carneola (see observation 130559). It is characterized by the fimbriate margins of cups, among other things like chemistry. Without these details in this case I will go towards C. chlorophaea group.
and C. chlorophaea group does seem like a better fit. Thanks again.
I just this moment figured out some of that. Actually I thought the cup portion could be Caldonia carneola but originally I had focused on the leafy part which I thought could be in the Parmelia genus—or in its family. Great information, I appreciate it. I’ll break this down into two separate postings. So you think C. chlorophaea for the cup lichen rather than C. carneola?
