Pick up sticks!

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Absolutely that Adam
keep an eye out for the very similar Diatrype bullata on Salix (including sallows) as per:

Having read this post with interest, I thought I had seen something similar on Hollyberry Cotoneaster in my garden. Here is the photo:

Also something similar, but probably not a fungus, on the same Cotoneaster:

Always keep your eyes open... :shock:
