but there are long, wispy things that look like paraphyses, and I didn’t see apiculi, and I felt like Alan would only have proposed B. citrina if he’d seen asci, even if none are clearly pictured here. still, I think you might be right.

they don’t appear to be septate or guttulate. have you tried AscoFrance?
