Observation 57546: Lachnellula P. Karst.

These tiny fungi are different to any of this type I have previously found. There is a white undersection below the yellow which becomes exposed at the outer edge perimeter and in the concave centre. The outer area of the fungi walls seems to be colored brown broken up again by the underlying white walls of the fungi.
The averge cap size would appear to be no more than about 1mm across.
*Add on. *
I forgot to mention that the fungi was found growing on an old log that had some fire damage to it. I cannot be sure of the species of tree, but the bark was comparable to some of our hardwoods. (eg. Strigy bark, iron bark etc.)

if they are soft bodyed you might look into Rutstroemiaceae family.

Comment re Lachnellula wilkom comparison.

Thankyou for yor interest and comment. After comparing the two images I find that the outer sections do not match. Image 57546 has a brown coloured exterior covering that appears to be broken up by the underlying white main body of the fungi. The inside and cetre section of this fungi also exposes the white of the main body as it matures. The outer body does not seem to have any hairy composition as in Lachnellula wilkom. The inmature specimens seem to be mainly light brown on the outside before opening. (I have also made an add-on note in the original summary.

compare to this: http://agrozoo.net/...

Our local name suggest that should mainly or only exist on Larix decidua tree,
that is where this exact specimen was found.
