6/24/2008 – Getting back to this observation, now have photos of micro-details.

These photos were taken of the hymenium squashed in Meltzer’s, at 1000x in oil. The shots display spores and an asci. The asci tip is blue in Meltzer’s, so this is a Peziza. The spores are ellipsiod, smooth and eguttulate.

Using the Trial field key to the PEZIZACEAE in the Pacific Northwest and looking at the spores, this point to an id of Peziza violacea.
