I found something similar last winter, growing from the bark of an oak.

I also saw something similar on the bark of a living yellow poplar last summer, but i didn’t get any pictures of it.

very cool.

wish you had saved it.

it reminds me vaguely of one of the Micromphale, since they also are tiny, grow on living bark, have a coating to their caps and probably fold up like an umbrella when young.
