I am grateful for the one out of 100 proposals you make which are plausible, sometimes surprisingly so. I am weary of the other 99 which are based on nothing but knee-jerk internet searching and cross-continental photo matching. Crataegus is a northern temperate genus of large shrubs and trees, commonly referred to as hawthorn. We grow tired of asking you to think before proposing.

And read these comments. They are written for your benefit and the site’s.

Hello Suze and Roo. For substrate,

Unfortunately I have not checked if there was wood hidden under these leaves. Sorry.

Hey Susanne, do you remember the substrate for these? I’m really leery of pinning IDs on conidial Xylaria, particularly in the tropics without something really specific to go on.
