Observation 67278: Ciboria Fuckel

When: 2011-05-11

Collection location: Parque de Monsanto, Lisboa, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

This is the first time I encounter this kind of ascomycetes funnel-shaped. Initially had no idea even of what could be. After consulting some references, especially in the internet, I found similar images of fungi belonging to genera Ciboria and Rutstroemia. However, the microscopic data that I found for the species which, in my opinion, were more alike are far away from what I observed:
Asci – Me = 70.6 × 5.2 mm; Qe = 13.6 (N = 12);
Spores – Me = 9 x4 µm (approximate measures).
I present a wide range of images on this observation, in the hope that someone can enlighten me on these ascomycetes.
