Thanks!

It was a week ago but I'm getting a bit behind on IDs. Amazing - Miked posted one last year and now we've found them within a week.

Well spotted!

I have seen (but not yet got an ID for) some tiny fungi on sticks recently but not as interesting as Earpick fungus. I will keep my magnifier ready!!
