I would say C. furcata

The only two that even come close are C. furcata and C. uncialis, which is thicker, less Cladina-like and has fewer squamules. There’s something called C. subsetacea which is even more Cladina-like, but I’ve never seen it despite looking for it specifically many times. All the other highly-branched Cladonia have duller cortex (C_. dimorphoclada_, C. leporina, C. pachycladodes, etc. and the Cladina).
