it was growing on moss that was growing on a rock.


Could be a form of fibula

or maybe not..
It seems like mycoquebec doesn’t recognize Rickenella mellea. I see no reason why it couldn’t be there (listed from Labrador, Montana etc.). You should at least keep your eyes open for it. Size and stature like fibula, but different colour, slightly longer spores, and prefers more wet places, usually found in mires and in mosses along creeks and ditches.

I don’t thing so
