Nidula at first, has the peridioles embedded in gel, a brownish to clear-tan mucus gel. Also the peridioles are small and dark brown/blackish [ Click here ] compared to the large whitish ones in Crucibulum. Your photos show 2-3 covering the bottom on the cup, which is typical of Crucibulum.

Darvin, thanks for the correction. Following the key in MD, I looked with a hand lens for the “minute cords or short stalks” attached to the eggs, but couldn’t see them, and that led me to the Nidula branch. Now, the funiculus cannot be seen in the photos and I’m wondering what other characteristic (visible in the photos) distinguishes C. laeve from N. candida.

Britney, thanks! I enjoy following your postings too.
