Spathularia:

Mitrula:

To me, the latter looks more like this observation.

(and a yellowish stem) is rather a sign of a young Spathularia to me.
Could be Spathularia flavida – or do you have other yellow species?

I meant

the specific way that it is lobed. :) Spathularia tend to be flattish with a lobed edge; this is more pillow-like with a cleft in the middle, which I associate more with Mitrula.

is not particularly Mitrula-like..

is very Mitrula like.

I wonder

if it’s Mitrula with yellow stems. Couldn’t it be very young Spathularia flavida – or if they grow on wood, Dacryopinax..?
