is not a comprehensive text for identifying ascomycetes, it’s a general field guide and very limited in scope (Mike Beug says so himself). Such fungi are notoriously difficult to ID to genus, much less to species, on macromorphology alone. I encourage you to not take my word for it, but to upload this image and any others you have, along with any notes, to AscoFrance.fr. Please post back here once they’ve had a chance to weigh in. If they say it’s M. chateri, you have my vote, no questions asked.

Why not

Melastiza chateri? That’s what was closest in Ascomycete Fungi of North America. The habitat is wrong for Scutellinia.
