Diatrype grow THROUGH the bark not on it.
OK, it was tough, and crust like, I am very puzzled indeed
Could it have been dried up Exidia glandulosa?
Desicated=dried up ;-)
If you had brought it home and left it in water it would reabsorb water and become usual jelly like blob.
Yes, a dessicated example, missed your post, sorry

I shall go and retrieve it and see :D
I need all the help I can get right now with identifying things as I have just got into fungi over the past few months and it's an enormous challenge, but it's enjoyable and addictive!
It grows on you (pun intended) always happily share any hints and tips I know. Its doubly difficult, as in this case, where specimen is not as it usually occurres in books.
Thank you for your advice, I have lots of pics, some of which I cannot identify and will post, and some ones which I can, which is great. The latest great find was an albino variant of the Jelly Ear Fungus - Auricularia auricula-judae!
See, I can agree with you :D
