You can rule out Dasyscyphus

Dasyscyphus is confined to hardwoods, Lachnellula to redwood. But it is not okay to ID a Lachnellula with Fungi of Switzerland coz there are many species lacking and/or determined wrong…but there are two good keys available … nevertheless, L. occidentalis could be right, it is the most common on Larix.

Could be Lachnellula

Flipping through Fungi of Switzerland, there are several plausible matches among the species of Lachnellula that grow on Larix. Is there any way to be sure of the genus without microscopy? For example, can we rule out Dasyscyphus? (Shape/texture of spores, paraphyses and hairs will remove all doubt.)

Caloplaca cerina (Ehrh. ex Hedwig) Th.Fr. ?
