Found on the vertical edge of a cut Beech branch in Normans Riding Wood just this month. The picture shows the young fruits more or less resupinate and as they mature growing into an ear like shape. The diagnostic feature is the presence of strigose hairs on the cap at the point of attachment which in the photograph looks like a black shaggy wig. The spores are fully or sub globose averaging about 4.5 um
The biggest fruiting bodies are only about 3mm across the longest side so are pretty small.
