Growing underneath Cupressus macrocarpa. About 2cm across and as usual, only partially exposed. Note two small holes in upper surface….. presumably made by birds or maybe small insects. I have seen holes like this in nearly all specimens I have observed.

I have been to that part of Nelson.
Bet you haven’t been to Gyre Woodlad in Orphir, Orkney UK!
Well I live near there and I revisited an old friend today Paurocotylis pila. I first recorded it here in 2007.
I have a picture but can’t upload it here.
You can see it here
