Thanks for your comment!! I cannot imagine you having trouble with anything. I saw this a couple of years ago in Colorado and just took a guess that it was the same species. How’s that for scientific reasoning!! Both Northern Arizona and Northern New Mexico are such wonderful places to visit. I found fungi “heaven” at the Santa Fe Ski Basin area. It was “awesome”. And that’s a word I never use.

I used to have so much trouble with this species!

Especially forms like this that are predominately crustose. But this definitely has the typical lobe tips that are coming free of the substrate.
