from UC Davis, a Leitz HM-LUX.
What microscope are you using? Maybe you have told me before…,
it seems a good technique, that soon I will try.
Thanks, Ron, for the explanations.
on a clean surface under glass overnight. There were enough loose spores to give a decent print which I used to make the first two spore photos.
what do you mean by spore print in this type of fungi?
weight one can put on immature spores still in the asci.
All of the spores I checked were from the spore print and they were consistently with 15 septate.
Also just added a couple more micro photos.
because in the last photo there is a spore (on the middle right) which has clearly 12-septa and some others within the asci cannot have 15-septa as well.
by Beug and the Bessettes, Trichoglossum variabile has mostly 9-14 septate spores.
Initially, I was getting 16 on all my spores but then realized everybody must be counting just the vertical lines and not the individual segments.
