Crust Fungus

A grey crust fungus, probably Peniophora cinerea, growing on a fallen beech branch (Fagus sp).

I took the following specimen home with me:

It yielded the following spores (magnification x600, field width 86um):

These are about 9.5 x 3.5um which is at the large end of the range 7-9(-10) x 2.5-3.5um given for Peniophora cinerea given here at MycoBank.

First photo and specimen taken in the Wilderness, Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2014-03-02.
