I’ve used Cladonia chlorophaea group a few times. The only trick is going to be to agree on an “official” representative. In this case, though, I think it’s pretty unanimously Rhizocarpon geographicum group.

groups could be a useful construct, for yellow Rhizocarpon, yellow Acarospora, several groups of Cladonia, …

beauty!

Too bad there’s no way to assign a species to these things without a spore cut. Should we create a “R. geographicum group” for them? The yellow narrows it down significantly, no reason to throw that info away, right?
