You might like to compare

You might like to compare this with a specimen I found at Wicken Fen growing from the dead stem of Cladium http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/247804

Suppose you have thought

Suppose you have thought about Tubaria.
Of course always the possibility that its a new species to science but can only even think about that after all the microscopic description is done and compared to existing species. Think Roger Phillips found a new to science small brown species in similar habitat to this when he was writing first edition of his mushroom book and I suspect there are others waiting to be discovered if someone has the patience to do all the microscope work and keying out. Also need to keep dried specimens so they can be examined by other experts and checked.
