to measure micros. But I’d estimate the spores here to be about 6 × 5. Warts did not come through in the photos, but were clearly observable through the scope.

Habitat for this collection was interesting, well-rotted remains (humus) of a stump near a wet area. Trees were mainly hardwoods, birch, maple, some oak in the vicinity. When I first found these, I wondered about them being Corts. Warty subglobose spores lend confidence to the Cort proposal. Comparing with photos of C. flavifolius, the ones in this post match very well.

Thanks, Emma.

Not that often one receives a highly confident cort proposal! I collected a thin spore print on a piece of paper. I’ll see about trying to find a few spores under the scope.
