Thanks Janet, it is a 'first-sighting' for me of this fungi. I too can distinguish the 'eye-lashes' under zoom magnification. Do you think it is S. scutellata? Kind regards
Unfortunately there are several similar species of Scutellinia and they can only be separated microscopically. I think I'd go for Scutellinia olivascens because the bristle-like hairs look shorter than Common eyelash but don't quote me!
