The tiny cups on the dead elm trunk that we found near the end (brown with white hairy edges) were actually a basidiomycete and fit perfectly with
Lachnella alboviolascens. I spent ages looking through ascomycete books and Ellis and Ellis looking for something similar before I looked at it under
the microscope and realised my mistake! Looking at the Norfolk Mycota, this has been found quite a few times before, but its definitely a new one for me.
I attach photos of the hairs and spores. The spores are very large for such a tiny fungus!
(up to 14 x 10.8 microns).
