is this on oak? if not, there are two reasons to doubt C. quercinum:

1. C. quercinum grows on oak

2. C. quercinum is a temperate species, and this fungus was found in French Polynesia.

add to this that the vast majority of Ascomycetes require microscopy to be identified to species.

i do not think you have considered my previous comments on the use of North American and European names for French Polynesian taxa. there is a mycologist here in the US who has collected French Polynesian material on at least one occasion, and presumably has compiled a checklist of the area’s species. once I hear back from him, i look forward to making those resources available to you as soon as possible.

maybe Colpoma?
