Observation 136708: Chaetothiersia vernalis Perry & Pfister
When: 2013-06-06
0 Sequences

Found on rotting log, probably large conifer, but under alders, in wet area. Although I collected these, I was lead there by Bharati after she found these first.

When I showed these to Prof. Desjardin, he was happy enough to see them, since they are not found every year. But he asked me right away, “Wait what is that?”, pointing at the grey crust behind the cups. Turns out this grey crust was a Tomentella, and one that hadn’t been seen before up there, and was added to the species list.

Oh, btw – these were found just downstream (about 300 yards or so) from the type location for this species.
