Hymenoscyphus epiphyllus has been deprecated and you don’t appreciate it. Sorry im a poet. I’m not 100 % sure it is this. This is growing just under Chestnut oak No where else on the property. but where it is growing it is very prolific.
After doing a little research, You are probably right. But I will put up some scope pics tomorrow. And we will put This to Bed.

..new one to me..
