Fuscidea lightfootii

Observation - Fuscidea lightfootii - UK and Ireland. Description: On rotting fence post. I was hoping to confirm this microscopically, but what I had assumed were young apothecia are actually pycnidia - so no ascospores, just swarms of conidia (ovoid to dacryoid, c. 2-3 x 2µm).
