Description:

Found growing on Ash. Gemmae are clearly present on both photo's but I am unsure as to whether they are just present on the very tip (indicating M. fruticulosa) or on the margins as well (M. temperata).
Hope someone with more knowledge can help out, many thanks.

The general look of this

The general look of this suggests M. fruticulosa to me, hard to describe why in definitive id features though (except the gemmae on shoot tips only). :/
