These things are hard enough without “faking” septae in their spores. That’s just perverse! :)
I have no definitive answer for the classification of this specimen, but it doesn’t seem to be T. sedifolia. What I could understood from the microscopy is that most problably we are in the presence of a Toninia with fusiform to acicular spores which are more than 1-septate (see another one with this feature in observation 107285), though the photos are not fully clarifying.
Interesting that those two species key out completely differently in my keys, yet looking at your photos, I can see a strong resemblance. This one does look like it has much more convex squamules and is more pruinose than even the most pruinose specimens you’ve posted of T. aromatica.
I don’t generally pay too much attention to your Toninia because I know so little about the group, but this one really jumped out as being exactly like stuff I’ve seen in North America.
Thanks for the comment.
