C tests would help tremendously

If you could apply a very weak spot of bleach with a toothpick or Q-tip on an apothecium that’s been sliced in half vertically, that might give us everything we need. (We’re trying to distinguish the reaction of the cortex and epihymenium from the interior of the rims, thus the extreme care in application.) if you get nothing, then try being more aggressive to see if there’s any reaction at all. Should be pale fleeting pink to stronger and more persistent red, or no pink/red at all and instead go immediately yellow or orange.

What a strange-looking specimen, right??
