We should use a microscope, but this beautiful specimen that I carried around all day and forced people to look at with my hand lens, ended up getting tossed accidentally at the end of the day. I may be motivated to go back this week and collect another sample from the same log, the one from which several people carry bruises from attempting to climb over (mostly from the blackberry vines which caught our boots in mid step. The good news, I got a lot of people excited about mycology at our fair when they saw this beauty under the lens.

You got me :)

and of course just to tell, yes, we should :)

just in case if it is not gelatinous of course. If it was, then it is Hypocrea gelatinosa :)
