The fruit-bodies of these have pointed “roots” that adhere these to the wood. This particular one had four appendages.

Pretty sure…

…that these aren’t stalked. I ’ll try and peel some up for an under shot next time. Thanks for trying everybody.

Don’t know this one and the site will not accept the name. I recall Sam Ristich talking about a look alike for Bisporella citrina but do not recall the species.

Agree with myxomop..

about Dasyscyphus and Lachnellula though the later is usually stalked, even if really short AND found on conifers

Super flat and fairly smooth with tiny white hairs around the edges of some of them…

…you can kind of see hairs in the newly added photos, the clarity of them sucks though.

Dasyscyphus and Lachnellula may be two other remote possibilities, but those are distinctly hairy. Any other shots? Finding it difficult to determine three dimensions from this photo alone. Stipitate or truly sessile? Jelly or smooth disc?

Of course, there are likely authorities all around us who narrow down lignicolous yellow ascos with much greater ease and accuracy than myself.

Are you sure?

I can’t recall finding these with white edges like this before.
