Observation 92858: Dasyscyphus Nees ex Gray

When: 2012-04-15

Collection location: Kelley Point Park, Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Sava Krstic (sava)

Specimen available

Growing on a dead blackberry vine, about 4 mm thick.

Spores 6-8 × 1-1.5 microns.

Unable to see hairs well under the scope. That, and encrusted paraphyses, make me unsure that Dasyscyphus virgineus is a correct ID.

Daniel: Yes about the measurements. Those 4 mm I did measure, the rest more-or-less follows. I was on my knees looking at something else and removing some leaves when I accidentally exposed them. Since there were many of them and I was low, they were easy to see.

Danny: Thanks for the suggestion. I have not used AscoFrance yet, but your comment made me file an application.

a good ob for AscoFrance

and cap has to be .25 to .5mm across. How did you even see these, Sava?

Small Peziza?

Stipe and what looks like it may be a cup. No shots from above, so just guessing here.

One of the numerous micro-Pezizales I’d guess. Still would like to see into the cup to verify it was a cup.

If blackberry vine was 4mm thick, then each of these has a cap of about 1mm or less across?
