I thought C. portentosa, too, but…

that species also has not been reported for the area. Options form Spribille et al 2010:

C. mitis
C. rangiferina
C. stellaris
C. stygia

I see a number of tips branching in 5’s, and it looks like they are forming “compact heads”, both characteristics of C. stellaris.
