we have every one of us lost interesting and unusual specimens. doesn’t make us iditos, just makes us human.

at least we have a photo record here!

Ill find it again. I know the precise location…
So assuming it wants to, it may fruit there in the future, or in that general area I hope.
I didn’t keep it because I’m an idiot…
And i was in a Leon Sinks swamp in Apalachicola National Forest with mosquitoes eating my mother alive while I kept hearing, “I need to get out of here,” every 5 seconds…

it doesn’t exist anymore.

so, no matter how interesting, this is all speculation.

it reminds me of something brought into a BAMS meeting years ago by Erin Blanchard. Not sure what we decided it was, or where it ended up, but it had a similar color and that ball ’o cups shape …

maybe someone else wil find another, somewhere, someday …

whatever this is

it is beautiful and interesting and needs to be worked up to say anything of consequence about it. it should be named broadly until then.

what is your reasoning, Richard?

and darn it, why didn’t you save it! Very cool asco.

There are certainly lots of similar looking, clustered cup neobulgaria, but how can you be certain?

this is a Neobulgaria…

I would upload this to AscoFrance

Why Ascomycota over “Discomycetes”?

i believe the specimen was growing directly off of oak.

interesting asco

What was the substrate? Burned conifer?
