Notice the “primary thallus” (the part that the podetia is growing out of) is crustose, not squamulose, that points to Pilophorus instead of Cladonia, a much less common genus, found on rocks in moist dark places. This one has elongate black tips so it’s P. clavatus instead of the maybe more common C. acicularis. Good find!
