I had a feeling

I would goof this. Thanks for catching my boo-boo, Roo.

The biscog, which should be boo-boo-free, is at Observation 220677.

As for magnification, I remember nothing! I’m always wishing I could append some notes to the cell phone images I take through the microscope so I can remember magnification levels, mounting media, stains/reagents, structure type, heck, even what specimen belongs to what image. There’s always paper, it’s true, but a digital fix would be nice.

And the other thing on this little Alnus log was the Biscogniauxia bartholomaei, which was also a new record for OR.

Ah, I see what happened…

MO 220675 is on the same log, but we never worked out what it was! Your micrograph, though, might be from this fungus—the spiraling germ slits are right, and the big apical rings, but I can’t tell the scale from your picture; was that taken at on the 40X objective, do you remember?
