Observation 63739: Hypocrea gelatinosa (Tode) Fr.
When: 2008-11-22
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: Hypocrea gelatinosa produces gelatinous droplets on rotting wood. It starts with 8 spores in each ascus, but when the spores ripen, they each split into two spores, i.e., each ascus has 16 spores. In the case of Hypocrea gelatinosa, the original spores do not split equally and the daughter spores are unequal: one is round and larger, and the other is elliptical and smaller. The ripe spores are green, which is an unusual color for fungal spores.
