searched for hours today and monday and eventually found a few but not as nice as in the foray. however eocronartium muscicola is known from several place in north eastern north america
this fungus is very difficult to look at under the microscope, but i still have a few specimen in, however it is not me that have found the specimen, i only took the pictures there and brought it home to try to find the basidia
a micrograph of those unusual spores! ;)
Chilean specimens may be outliers.
This species, parasitic on a variety of bryophytes, apparently occurs throughout the Northern hemisphere.
How somebody even saw this in the field, let alone put a name to it, is rather remarkable.
Good work, Jonathan. SO sorry to have missed NEMF this year.
At the foray the link I found was from South America which made me doubt it being in Quebec.
what are the things that make you not feel absolutely confident about this ID?
