Since the last update I've found it in a couple of other 10km squares in the Scarborough/Filey area, and it's also been found in Whitby, further up the Yorkshire coast.
Today I found it in Shepley, near Huddersfield, so the distance from the sea has been increased to around 52 miles, and this find was at 188 metres above sea level.

So here is the current distribution map, based on the data I currently have. (Actually now - updated - in the following post).

Amazed how quiet this site is - there's still a lot to see out there. I spotted what I thought was a Griselinia bush from the bus a couple of days ago.
Had a chance to check today - and there was the fungus - so another dot . . .

Bonsoir Hervé
Pas besoin de s'excuser, le français est une belle langue :!:
I subscribe to BFMDS as well - as part of my membership of Ascomycete.org - I use it as a way to keep my schoolboy French alive.
Excellent paper and it is good that UK Fungi had a part to play.

Physalacria stilboidea seen today in Shepley, S of Huddersfield, highest site yet I think, at 234 metres. Also interesting is that it was on a Griselinia variety with variegated leaves.
I have found two Griselinia shrubs by the baptist chapel at Scapegoat Hill - pictured here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scapegoat_Hill. So far I've not been able to find any suitable leaves - they tend to blow around a bit up there! but at 338 metres that would be impressive - so I'll keep looking.
