Oh okay, very good to know! The two species are very similar macroscopically.
Are you going to update the observation to include the species name?

That’s C. scabella. C. piceae is restricted to the needles of spruce…which does not occur at P. Reyes.

The species name is Crinipellis piceae. Glad to see you got some photos before Jennifer left. These were from the collection she had, correct? Or was this a separate find?
