a Hymenoscyphus with an apothecium-stipe ratio as large as this would have to be to be considered one, nor do they tend to get so planar, even undulating, as these do. Their stature is more like a miniature Cookeina (the stipitate ones). Else’s Ditiola proposal has stuck over at 55314. Couldn’t hurt to put it up here until/unless a better idea emerges.

The last photo in 55314 shows the attachment structures. 4 pointy ones. It was a real pain in the ass to remove the bits of wood!

Hymenoscyphus consciptum on the other link, which is what I thought from Fungi of Switz. But the host is willow there in the literatrue. Could be other substrates possible though…..

Cant see if there is a stalk or not, so is going to be hard to tell.
