When: 2014-10-30
(42.6844° -80.4636° )

Minute but common in more open mossy places of this restored tall grass prairie. Not tough or fragile but very flexible/ bendable.
must check microscope for undulations to confirm ID
sequencing is in the works, will update observation later

It looks like the pictures I’ve seen of C. undulata. I have some resources for IDing North American stipitate stereoids if you’d be interested in those.
