Collection location: Sitka, Alaska, USA [Click for map]
Who: Matt Goff (gwark)
Growing in a fen. Only one found.
2.5 cm tall, with the cup 3mm wide and 4mm tall.
Other characters: tips of the asci blue in iodine, spores are oval, 8/ascus
no oil bodies in the spores, and the surface of the spores is a bit roughened.
Seems like maybe a Plectania, but it doesn’t look like anything I’ve found photographs of on-line.

this is quite cretain a Monilinia species, which grow on old berries of different kind. There is M. urnula on berries of Vaccinum ursa-vitis, but there are certainly more species. What is a bit disturbing is, that all these species should have oil inclusions in the spores, and as I regard this an important character, yours might be another genus that is unknown in Europe. By I’m pretty sure about Monilinia.
