Primary squamules not sorediate, small, 2-3mm long, yellowish-green; podetia yellowish green, cupless, sometimes branched near tips, continuously corticate or areolate, not sorediate, sometimes with squamules; apothecia red, usually conspicuous; chemistry usnic acid (KC+y), barbatic acid, sometimes didymic acid.

C. didyma can also have squamules on podetia, but is also sorediate.

Cladonia cristatella is possible

I could not find a good description for it. However, european sites don’t refer to this species. I didn’t find a european species with red apothecia and squamules enlarging toward the base.

Red apothecia/pycnidia in top photo and looks like it has no soredia. Might be other species in Europe that fit that description, though.
