Could this...........

Could this possibly be Ascocoryne cylichnium? It looks larger and has a well formed spherical disc like that species.

ID

ID could fit both so would not like to say unless a microscope was used as spores are larger on A.cylichnium to A.sarcoides.

Okay...............

Okay fair enough. Perhaps you might revise the ID to simply "Ascocoryne sp" then. I promise I'll "agree" if you do ;)
