Glyphium elatum is a tiny Ascomycete fungus found on decaying wood. Its massed colonies look like a deposit of soot. Individual fruiting bodies are chisel-shaped, 1-2mm tall. When they mature, the corners fold in to give a pointed shape with a slot for emerging spores. This colony was on a dead twig.
