Observation 173382: Hypocreales Lindau
When: 2014-08-11
( 0m)
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On thoroughly decomposing log on ground of unknown species. Amongst Oak, Birch, Cherry, Hemlock.

I had thought it might be Hypocrea rufa… but the spores do not seem to match.

Fruiting bodies 5 to 10mm long, soft, hardening when dry.

Spores appear tapered- seemingly with hyaline points or appendages at each end. Possibly 1 septate? 8 per ascus. Perithecium orange.

Thanks for any thoughts or suggestions.

Best,

~ Luke Cannon
