Observation 159892: Dacrymyces Nees
When: 2014-02-17
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Very small fruit-bodies growing on a twig, largest 3.2mm wide.
Very rubbery and probably immature.
Didn’t find any mature spores but largest was ~ 16 X 6 microns, granular and they appeared to be heading for 5-6 cell walls.
Basidia Y shaped.
Saw plenty of clamp connections on the hyphae which eliminated the local favorites like D. chryospermus and D. capitatus.
