much less species, will likely be out of reach without more information (substrate, closer photos, photomicrography).

agreed mxyo.. strange enough

i went on the hyperlink you sent for the wiki to learn that indeed these were all basidio, as i always think asco when i see something this small. So thanks for teaching me that.

But upon scrolling down, i saw a picture of a Merismodes i took this spring and is now on wiki. What a coincidence!

That being said, i think (guess) that this observation may be Hyaloscypha hyalina as described in Fungi of Britain and Europe (Buczacki). This is an asco however

I’ve found this site: http://www.ascofrance.com/index.php?r=bdd&page=search to be an invaluable resource for such finds, but it would be that much more useful if it were possible to limit search results to a combination of user-specified criteria (ie: stipitate/sessile, hairy/smooth margin, etc.), not simply substrate & genus or species name. what were the conditions like? (dry, wet, average) Were any of the fruiting bodies more open/cupulate/planar than these?

I believe them to be sessile, yes.

these look sessile. can you confirm this? also, any id on the tree genus the leaf belongs to?

Similar to this

But I have very little confidence in the genus I proposed for it…
