Used references: a specialist in pyrenomycetes helped me in identifying this beautiful species consisting of a mat of dark hyphae sitting on the host wood and coloring it yellow inside and the tiny conical balls above which are inside reddishyellow when ripe. Origin of this species is still not known, there are records from all over the world in warmhouses as well as open air. In Austria there is just another locality in a peat bog known.

“Austrian species” with pantropical range

It’s truly an interesting species, with Austrian (!) type locality (Kirchdorf an der Krems) but most records seem to come from tropical countries. We found it last year north of Simbach / Inn – perhaps the first Bavarian record.
