Plectania turns orange, I think at least some (P. melastoma included) start with orange granules on the outside.

I lost it! Put it on my backpack (not in tacklebox), then got busy with Microglossum and Leotia that were on the same spot, and forgot about the red-spotted asco (or whatever it is).

This thing again!
