I thought that it could be Phillipsia crispata because of its color.

Phillipsia crispata has dull brown color, while Phillipsia domingensis is bright red. They were found almost together with Sarcoscypha, on pieces of wood partially submerged in soil. In one instance, they grew on an oak log.

how does this differ
