On a small beach of the Clackamas River, at the edge of the campground. Found on clumps of soil full of some rather tall grass; growing profusely on soil and dead grass.

Spores 20-22 × 14-16 with Q = 1.4.

The substrate and spore size point to S. umbrarum, not S. scutellata, which has smaller spores (17-19 × 11-14) with Q = 1.5.


In IKI at 10×. Asci ~250 × 15-20. Tips of paraphyses ~7 microns.
Warty spores, but not so distinctly as in description. Maybe still immature.
Haris up to 2 mm, some with multifurcate base.

… that I am still not sure I’ve ever found S. scutellata.

Thanks, Sava

Great to see Scutellinia observations with microscopy populating the site.
