Observation 150193: Helotiales Nannf. ex Korf & Lizon

One of the specimens displayed at the Oregon Mycological Society Fall Mycocamp, 27 October 2013. Most were collected 26 October at Camp Magruder, with others collected within about 50 miles on the Oregon coast, and — fewer — in the Oregon Coast Range, or even as early as 23 October near Portland, Oregon.Most specimens at this foray were identified by: Richard Bishop (Leciman), Sava Krstic (Sava), Judy Roger, Sallie Tucker Jones, Christian Schwarz (Christian).

gets a little closer. B. citrina is certainly one possibility, but micro is required to make an identification.

Possibly better image

Thanks for the clarification.

I think that when I posted that image, I compressed it a fair bit (in addition to cropping it).

Perhaps the original will be a little more helpful. Elmer Galbi (the photographer) posted it at:

Just to clarify, I’m familiar with how to view images in all available sizes. The image here is 418 × 253 at its maximum resolution. Though it is technically larger than the thumbnail at 160 × 96, the advantage in image quality is negligible. My hope was that an image of significantly larger resolution exists, enough to see fine detail.

I suspect that, like so many other ascomycetes on MO, B. citrina may be an over-applied name for what is actually a complex of macroscopically similar species. This was the fate of many Scutellinia observations not long ago, practically all of which were without microscopy but wantonly labelled all the same as S. scutellata.

Textile, larger images

1. Entering users’ names as links
Use the Textile markup system. In particular, type: _user [User Name]_
For instance, typing
_user Danny Newman_
results in
Danny Newman.
MO does a User Lookup for [User Name]. So either the Login name or the User Name should create a good link.

2. Image Size
A. If you’re asking generally about MO thumbnails, the answer is:
When viewing an Observation (as opposed to a list of Observations), click on a thumbnail. MO will display a larger image, with links above the image to all available sizes. For instance, try clicking on the thumbnail in observation 153405, then click on any of the links above the image.

B. If you’re asking about the photos in the 2013 OMS Fall Mycocamp Species List
I’ve posted the best available photos. I wish the quality — particularly composition and focus — were better, but this is the best I can do for now. Once I have all the photos and voucher info posted, I’ll see if someone has better photos they will share. But at the moment, that seems unlikely.

how do you enter users’ names as links?

edit: and are there any images larger than thumbnail size and/or microscopy?
