Not the greatest quality, but this is the best I could get.
I have no macro lens at the moment.
Alan Rockefeller has some samples from my collection, and I’m sure he plans on performing microscopy on them.
Hopefully we’ll have some images/data from him soon!

awesome!

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing the insides of these little guys. No chance you’d be able to post a pic of the spores too, is there? Would require access to a compound microscope. Fungi in this family are often distinguished species-to-species by the size and shape of the ascospores in the perithecia.

Definitely!

I’m not sure if my dried specimens will be easily sectioned without crumbling, but if it doesn’t work, I can collect a couple more fresh specimens from that area and slice those.

wow!

Those are so freaking cool! I’ve never seen a Poronia with such distinctly flattened tops to the stromata before. Any chance you could post a photo of a sectioned specimen?
