Observation 130147: Pezizales J. Schröt.
When: 2013-03-11

Notes: Growing on the ground with woody debris.
Largest is 2.2 cm across and stem ~ 0.5 cm high.
Could not get any spore print.
Asci without amyloid tips. Asci were ~ 15-18 microns wide.
They appear to be too immature as what few spores I could see in the asci were under developed.
Fruitbodies were relatively tough and somewhat rubbery.


Asci in Congo Red @ 1000X.
Asci in Congo Red @ 1000X.
Asci in Melzers @ 1000X.

keep keep an eye out for these and hopefully will be able to collect more specimens in the future.

I agree, this is probably the same as Sebastopol’s collection. I can do a DNA analysis if you want to, but it’s also important to link the results to morphological and microscopic data. So this is only a first step, and if you could find again the species, next year, a deeper study could be made.

They do similar to what Darv

found in Sebastopol http://mushroomobserver.org/92718.
Nicolas, my collection is available if you or someone you know wishes to do a DNA analylsis on it.

Unknown to me

If asci don’t react with a iodine reagent, so impossible to classify it in the Pezizaceae.
I also exclude Neournula, and think it could be a Tarzetta species or something close…
As the specimens are immature, only a DNA analysis could give an answer.

It really reminds me

of Neournula, but the spores are a poor match (but as you say, that could be due to immaturity). Would be worth sending out for sequencing.
