a key character here may be the “chain asci” (see Talaromyces). you probably have enough information to get an ID from AscoFrance. if you do post there, post back here with your findings.

Thanks Debbie.

This seems very obscure. I’ll have to research the Ascomycota branch and see what I can find.

ooops.

didn’t see the micrographs.

it reminds me of an ascobolus…at any rate, some sort of asco with those spore packages.

could be sclerotia forming.

save some undried and see what develops.

Shape seems wrong for a slime mold.

The fruiting bodies lack consistency in size. It would be nice to see some spores on this one.
