any chance of a look at those pictures? or is there even enough to go off of from this photo to make a meaningful macro-comparison?

Moser has two species of Hoehnelomyces. H. javanicus is the type and he has a description and two photos of H. delectans. He also mentions that Atractiella lacks a stalk and is basically a pustulate blob and some authors consider them synonyms.

Im trying to find out about this genus. Sounds interesting…. but dont have quite the library you do. Cant find anything on the web. Can you shed any light.
I think this is a Tricheales nonetheless. Have seen the white in many species early stages.
