General Description

Cladonia ochrochlora is considered by Pino-Bodas et al (2021) to be a robust morph of Cladonia coniocraea. The morph appears to simply be well grown individuals, typically in sheltered damp conditions, that have grown large and have developed small cups at the tip of the podetia.

For the time being the taxa is still being recorded by the BLS mapping scheme.
