Observation 134202: “Discomycetes” Sacc.

Previously I have loaded fungi that has been named, :“Discomycetes”
I found this excellent specimen and decided to load it for further ID. It was almost 2cm across. There was some doubt about the underside being white. This specimen is the largest I have ever found and the underside is white. The fungi is well constructed and shows its properties the best I have been able to provide.. They are only common in one particular area of Swans found growing on the substrate on a vey steep ravine.

here’s your golden opportunity to post your first micrograph, with your new scope!

ascos are some of the best ones to look at under a scope. stain it with Meltzers first, if you have any.

If not, we’ll have to figure out a way to airdrop some down to you!

Haha, you are now a hopeless myco-nut along with the rest of us! ;)

Thanks for saving species too, we appreciate it. We know how hard it is for you in the bush. Add a dryer to the top of your pack, eh? ;)

Always a pleasure to see your sightings here. You are indeed our Man in OZ.
