Here’s an example of what I had in mind…

The context looks a bit thin for Exidia.

But I wondered if maybe this was due to them being a little dried out. I recently made a collection of Exidia recisa that had me wondering “Exidia or Aricularia?” for awhile. Some fruitings of Exidia form lobed fruit bodies that sorta morph together. This obs reminded me somewhat of this.

Spore size and shape for Aricularia and Exidia are very similar.

these are certainly Auricularia.
they were growing in clusters and i shot them in macro mode.
the image may be a little misleading…
