They’d be primordia then. Looks like they must undergo quite a change in appearance to become mature H. rufa fruit bodies. Then again, the pictures of H. rufa at http://nt.ars-grin.gov/... (a great site indeed) look like they retain much more of that semi-translucent red than these specimens have. Nothing at all like these perithecia-stuffed, creamsicle blobs, really.

normally i would say nectria, but if you scan the whole picture on huge, youll see variations on these red dots. To me they look like

Check rufa, then ‘submit’. Then go to the top header to images and desciptions.

I just found this site a few weeks ago in case you havent used it. They have a great one for hypomyces as well. Takes a little tinkering around to extract info, but pretty neat.

So i think that it is just beginning stages of H. rufa

we were referring to the red spherical growths beside the much larger orange ones. i’m guessing the sketch is indeed of Hypocrea asci, especially since the observer knew not of another, adjacent specimen just a few comments ago.

Not Lycogala, maybe Nectria.

…really?

I’m only familiar with L. epidendrum and it’s certainly not that. Here are some other sightings of what I’m pretty sure is the same thing.

and possibly http://mushroomobserver.org/63646

I’ve gone with Nectria as a guess for each of them.

It might be Lycogala

I am colorblind and I did not notice this critter. Oluna says that it might be Lycogala. Adolf

The little red growths surrounding the bottom-right Hypocrea in the second photo. What are those? More of the same?
