Observation 202464: Cyphellaceae sensu lato
When: 2015-03-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: In younger primarily conifer forest. Substrate is the skull of a deer or elk. There were a lot of deer/elk bones in the area.

Microscopy seemed to me inconclusive, but I am a novice at it, so I’m including some photos for examination. The bulk of the microscopy looked like clear or yellow irregular blobs packed together (photo included), but I’m mostly attaching photos that looked different from that.

I thought it might be an ascomycete, but together with Ed Carter’s similar substrate observation (http://mushroomobserver.org/202465), I’m wondering if it isn’t the beginnings of a pleurotoid mushroom.
