Dan – I have been watching a brown-orange thing growing on the bottom of a log for weeks. there is more now in other places. I don’t have a scope, but I wanted you to be aware of this observation: Trentepohlia aurea (64607) and this one Trentepohlia sp. (65288).

If I see this again, I’ll collect some.

Hi Dan. Did you get a chance to look at the spores? Tomentella spores are very distinct— dark and very spiny. I think it’s probably a Tomentella, but the microscope tells you in 2 seconds. I can;t think of what else it might be anyway.
