Have you tried a tape lift? Works really well for making good slides of lots of conidial fungi because it keeps the conidia with the conidiophores, and in primarily one focal plane.

Cool find, I really thought these were Xylaria looking at the picture!

If anyone knows …

a good technique to remove the white fungus from the exsicata of the Trichoglossum, I would appreciate that he let me know.
