Cladonia lichen - Beeley Moor

The weather was sunnier than forecast today but I didn't manage to get out until the afternoon. There were several Crossbill on Flash Lane but mainly in flight. On the moor I came across this Cladonia lichen with strikingly bright red fruits. I regularly see the British Soldier Lichen (Cladonia cristatella) but I think this may be Cladonia diversa although the identification and nomenclature of members of the Cladonia family seems to be rather complex.
