Observation 79377: Ascomycota Caval.-Sm.

When: 2011-09-24

Collection location: Serra de São Mamede, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

Lichenicolous fungus growing on Ochrolechia (the host was considered in Observation MO79376).
The ascoma is black and its size goes up to 65 um. As an illustration I choose a photo of an apothecium where four “big” ascoma developed, but a closer look to the photos at full magnification will reveal many others.
I don’t think one can say much about its classification, beyond that it must belong to the Phylum of Ascomycota, although the microscopy revealed some round cells (spores?) which can be observed in the attached photos.
