Cladonia transcendens is the most common of the redfruited Cladonia. It grows up to 4 cm tall on bark and wood, commonly on stumps, tree bases, and fallen logs, in low to mid-elevation coniferous forests. The stalk (podetia) of this yellowish green to gray green lichen arises from the center of leafy squamules, and is unbranched or sparingly branched, with poorly developed cups and red apothecia. The stalk is often covered with powdery soredia- microscopic reproductive propagules.
