Notes: This fungus was found growing off of a dead log with lots of shade and leaf litter around it. It did not have a distinct smell to it.
The fungus was a dark purple color that looked like small gelatinous cups. They formed clusters together, and when they were touched, they had a cartilaginous feeling to them. They were very firm, and they bounced back quickly when they were touched.
The spores of this fungus looked like pointy ovals, and their shapes ranged from 17.6-26.2 × 3.8-4.4 microns. The hymenia on this fungus did not look like basidia at all. Instead, these hymenia were most likely asci.
