Found on a rock wall along the road. Leaves 2.6 - 3.2 mm long, narrowly lanceolate from an ovate plicate base.
Found on the side of a trail in a transition area between a mostly dense Doug fir/oak woodland and more sparse oak woodland. The fungus was found on a stump and was about 3 inches long. It hadn't rained in the area (California drought) for a while so the fungus was dry.
