Thanks, looks like I’ll need to check those out. :)

And reading about Gloeocystidiellum ochraceum makes me feel like finding the right features under the microscope will take a bit more research then I anticipated. I’ll hold onto the stick till I have a better idea.

But this looks a bit like Gloeocystidiellum ochraceum as pictured on MycoBank.org

Microscopic work is required to make a definite determination.

Byrain, here are some references to get you started:

Bernicchia is good for color pictures.
The Corticiaceae of North Europe vol 1-8 is the bible but hard to find and expensive. No color, just keys and descriptions.
Ginns is helpful to know if it’s found in USA.

I’m interested in learning more about crusts, but I don’t have any resources on them and am not really sure what where to start. Any pointers would be appreciated. :)
