Observation 92856: Bactridium flavum Kunze
When: 2012-04-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found by Judy Roger.

Growing or rotting log, probably cottonwood. About 1 mm broad.

The surface seems to consist entirely of cells as in the first microshot. They are 10 units long at 40x magnification, which is 0.25 mm.

I need some education here…
