I had forgotten. The French Asco website never contacted me with a password. I was under the impression that was supposed to happen. I’ll check the website and see if I can log in.

any luck?

I think I managed to join. It was requested that I submit a password, but then the website said that a password will be assigned to me. So I think I am currently waiting for a password to complete my registration. I don’t yet see a feature allowing me to make a post.

Click the Union Jack (UK Flag) tab at the top of the page next to ‘Accueil.’ This sets English as your language preference. From there, register a user/pass w/ email. Once signed in, click ‘Forum’ and then the orange ‘Add a topic’ button just beneath. The rest should be pretty self-explanatory. Let me know if you run into any trouble.

I checked out…

AscoFrance, and the site seems difficult to navigate for a person who does not understand French (me). Some features translate (roughly) and other features do not translate.

My “could be” level of confidence for Phaeohelotium is basically a function of what seems like an uncommon habitat for small yellow cups. Did a little checking, and Byssonectria terrestris looks like one species that’s difficult to completely rule out.

Thanks for the response, Danny.

not off the top of my head

I do know that the so-called “Discomycetes” are very seldom identified to species without the knowledge of micro characters, and the comparison of those characters to asco-specific literature. I encourage you to duplicate this observation on AscoFrance and see what they say. We have a paucity of ascomycetologists here, and I am definitely not one of them.

Danny, do you know…

of a fungus fitting this profile that grows on leaf litter? This was definitely the habitat for this collection.
