Two different species

Hi Jenny, I would go along with the right-hand photo being C. subulata, but the one on the left is surely C. ochrochlora? (Patchily corticate, pycnidia in a "crown".)

Ooops!

Hi Alan - thank you for the confirmation of RH and the correction of the LH photo - I've left the two photographs as a reminder to myself to keep my mind on what I'm doing!
