I do have the book

But it’s at home in California. Spore shape points towards S. coccinea. The spore size I measured is a bit small, but that’s likely because the spores were in the ascus and not mature.

got Beug’s Asco book?

What should I be looking for? Which other species look like this that have different microscopic characteristics? I did not dig them out of the wood, but I have the dried specimen here.

micro confirmed?

I see a stalk … did you dig these out of the wood and look at the entire fb?
