Observation 87562: Arrhenia retiruga (Bull.) Redhead
When: 2012-02-08
Who: Byrain
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing on moss, at first I thought this was Muscinupta laevis, but the spores don’t match. The basidia are 4-spored and I did not observe any cystidia or clamp connections.

Could this also be a Rimbachia?

Species like R. neckerae & R. arachnoidea have a similar hymenial surface, but the spore size doesn’t really convince me of either.

And there is some good discussion here.
