The cups are squamulose

That’s why I was thinking C.rappii — it’s same as C.verticillata, but with little squamules around the margins of the cups. In N. Amer. it’s more tropical than verticillata, which is promising, too. But I believe I couldn’t find rappii on the checklists of Cladonia for the area(?) Unfortunately I did all that research over a year ago, I no longer remember what resources I was using… :(

(Besides this looks a lot more tall and slender than typical material of C. rappii I’ve seen at NY and in Florida. I suspect that this is a different species, one that doesn’t occur in North America.)

This must not be C. verticiliata

though why I’m not sure.
