Hi Gina Without any real

Hi Gina
Without any real spore ornamentation (I assume you are using lcb) it looks good for S scutellata. Schumacher has jungneri pilati and crinita as very close cousins to scutallata but the differences are so close they have been rejected by some top mycologists.
There are lots of Scutellinia about at the moment so keep looking and you are sure to find others.
