Time flies indeed

but I haven’t learned enough in the last couple of years to be able to agree or disagree with your new insight. I would still suspect this fungus to be an anamorph of something; such profusion of spores is telling me (perhaps wrongly) that they are not basidiospores.

with fresh eyes after a couple years (how fast time flies!), these look more to be spores borne on the ends of long, spindly sterigmata of cruciate basidia, as is typical for some sebacinoid fungi. do you agree, Sava?
