I'm not entirely sure as lichens are not my field of expertise, but I think you have the apothecia on thalline podetia or stalks of a Cladonia spp.. Really need a Canberra expert to take a look at this one to be certain.

Hi Teresa - Thanks for the suggestion. I've looked at promising images of various Cladonia spp from Germany,Canada,Oregan,Britain and Cladonia floerkeana from the Cumberland Plain woodland at the Australian Botanic Garden. It certainly is a cosmopolitan genus. I'll put Cladonia sp up as a suggestion and await more expert advice. Here is the bot garden url:

Great site, thanks for the suggestion. Try either J. Elix or P.M.McCarthy at Australian National Botanic Gardens, Canberra. Al have had great input with Canberra Nature Mappers
