Notes: This is growing all over the compost pile out in the garden. The larger cups are about 1/4" in diameter.
I can’t get a decent photo through the microscope to post with this. I’ll try a few more times. I need one of those devices that holds the camera to the eyepiece.

I agree that those sparse, septate, pointy tipped hyaline hairs are a good match for theleboloides; habitat (garden debris plus horse poop) works, too! Thanks for tracking down the bits that didn’t fit our Swiss Asco description: the inclusions at the swollen tips of the paratheses.
I got 2 good photos of this under the scope, showing the setae. It was also noted that the paraphyses have little granular contents inside the tips. These are not noted in Breitenbach & Kranzlin. However, reading Mycologia vol. 56, 1964, the author (Wm. Denison) states in generic diagnosis that the paraphyses contain granular pigmented material near the tips. The key supplied in the article readily points to this collection being C. theleboloides, based on cup size, hair color, habitat and geography.
