A similar-looking species also known by the common name Reindeer lichen is Cladonia rangiferina.
C. 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.
