This’d be really cool, if it’s the Neohypodiscus: it’s really rare, and as far as I know it’s only been collected from the northwest a couple of times. I had to send the specimen I have (collected by Jeff Stone on teh Oregon coast) up to Jack Rogers for identification. The two-celled ascospores give it away as not your typical Xylariaceae. Any way you could look at the spores? I’ll post an observation with photos of the example I have.
