Observation 128030: Neohypodiscus cerebrinus (Fee) J.D. Rogers, Y.-M. Ju & Laessøe
When: 2013-02-07

Notes: Specimen was collected by Jeff Stone, who gave it to me knowing my interest in odd xylariaceous fungi.

The yellow colour is a bit exaggerated by the dissecting microscope light-source and my camera. It was actually pretty subtle. Slides of spores are made with Melzer’s Reagent. Asci have a flat apical ring that is clearly non-amyloid. One photo clearly showing the two-celled ascospores.

I couldn’t figure this one out, thinking it was Xylariaceae. I sent it to Jack Rogers, and he identified it.
