Basically I have no idea. Suppose it might be a slime mould, am just imagining a large patch that has broken up into these structures.
Thanks for your input. I don't think it's a slime mould. I don't know if you've seen all three photos but it is quite clearly a cup-like fungus. I've investigated Crepidotus, Tectella, Resupinatus as well as any other fungi that look anything like it that I've come across but nothing fills me with confidence as to it's identity.
If you have any other ideas I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
if you think its a fungus then might be a very small schizophyllum commune but very much a long shot
What else would you suggest if not a fungus?
I thought of Schizophyllum commune but the photos were taken with a Raynox 250 converter lens so that you can see that they were very small. Originally I only took a photo on the off chance of it being something interesting as I always do when I see what may be very small fungi. It certainly wasn't recognisable as anything interesting with the naked eye; it just looked like small white blotches reminiscent of the beginnings of some sort of encrusting fungus.
I feel sure there's some fungus out there that I've yet to come across that will tell me what it is
