Observation 79921: Thelotremataceae Stizenb.

When: 2011-10-15

Collection location: Planalto das Cezaredas, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

I obtained the folowing data from microscopy:
Spores: Me = 16.5 × 6.8 µm ; Qe = 2.5 (N=12). In some asci I counted 6-8 spores. The spores are septate but I’m not able to say how many septa they have.
Hymenium: 55-78 µm tall.

Looking to the photos in the first reference there are various species in the genus Chapsa where the ascocarps are similar, namely Chapsa pseudoschizostoma. Moreover, the data from microscopy also fits quit well in this genus. Maybe this is the genus of my specimen.


2nd specimen.
