Well done, you've added a new species to the Budawang Coast Nature Map list. These delightful little fungi, with decurrent (run down the stem) gills and white spores always grow in association with algae, forming a lichen. One of the few species of Basidiomycota that do.

Thank you Pam, you are always so helpful with these IDs and now I have found them in by book.
