Collection location: Bassetts, Sierra Co., California, USA [Click for map]
Found by Bharati, under alders, on alder branches, in swampy area.
The first micro-shot is of a cup in Meltzer’s at 400×. Here you can see the asci, and the lanceolate paraphases. No
The second micro-shot is of cup in Meltzer’s at 400×. And there is at least one “hair” from the cap here, which is warted/ornamented. This was true for all “hairs” from the back of the cup.
The third micro-shot is of spores from a cup in Meltzer’s at 400×.
There have been obs. other white tiny fuzzy cups in the area, but with the pointed paraphases, and the ornamented hairs this is clearly D. virgineus. And I have to say, this is true like 90% of the time that I get these tiny white guys under the scope.
