(Dufour) Coem. (1865)
A similar-looking species, also known by the common name "reindeer lichen", is Cladonia rangiferina.
Cladonia portentosa forms compact interwoven mats up to 6 cm tall. It is richly branched, each branch usually dividing into three but with the penultimate sometimes dividing into two. The branching is at a larger angle than that of Cladonia rangiferina.
