that’s a good idea.

Currently Porodisculus only has two species, so it should make the determination of whether or not this is a published species pretty easy.

but their usership tends to have something to offer for fungi which are sometimes mistaken for ascomycetes. that may or may not be the case for this find, but worth a try.

won’t help in this case – Porodisculus is a basidiomycete.

Jim Ginns published another species P. orientalis, but you could check the literature cited in that article.

bravo, Christian

and good thinking, Eduardo, to rehydrate the fruiting bodies a bit. Unfortunately I don’t know anyone who specializes in Porodisculus, though you might want to start with finding the names of authors who have described members of the genus. There’s always AscoFrance.fr as well.

Danny, i make new, detailed microscopic observation in this specimen and now im sure not is ascomycota, i agree with Christian that is a Porodisculus similar (Poriales), not pendulus, but may be a new specie. Do you know a expert in this group ? I can send a specimen, if is possible.

Very gorgeous specimen! Danny,

Ok, we are sending the data to a Helotiales expert in Venezuela

Hymenoscyphus are generally smooth, waxy to gelatinous and brightly pigmented. If this is even a discomycete, both hymenium and ectal excipulum are too roughened to be Hymenoscyphus or any other similar genus. What’s more, if you sent photos to Mieke and she had absolutely no idea, it’s definitely not a genus as common as Hymenoscyphus.

What do you think about Hymenoscyphus..?

but where are the pores?

fresh or haggered, a Porodisculus should show some trace of its hymenium.

Maybe a Porodisculus?
By: Christian (Christian Schwarz)

With its hymenium broken up?

looks like Poronia but that genus may be restricted to dung.

fyi Eduardo: your Sony Cybershot DSC-S930 is 10.1 MP. if it were 1 MP it would be capable of images twice this size. change the settings so we can see more detail in your images.

I send pictures to Meike Piepenbring, and she said never see that fungi before, but think is a discomycete.
