Observation 10055: Camarops petersii (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Nannf.

This beautiful, shiny, inky perithecial ascomycete begins life with its stroma enclosed in an outer peridium, which bursts to reveal the fertile surface within. I’ve tried to show this in the series of photos; the fourth one shows the fungus entirely enclosed. Found on decorticated wood.
