Description:

Looked like a lichen habitat -about 3-4cm diameter on a dead branch in the Peak District. Just one cluster - saw nothing like it and cant identify from my lichen books.

Not uncommon, perhaps -

But in my experience very localised. So it's maybe not surprising you've not come across it before - they are certainly easy to spot!
