I’ve got no further … I think it is unripe … but it doesn’t look like Dacrymyces or Femsjonia for which I suspected it … altho macroscopically it matches 100% …;(

you asked for it, you got it…

it’s a basidio, but it looked like it was still in process of development. here is what I came up with under the scope…got genus? ;)

have you looked at them under the scope already? Otherwise it will be quite impossible to even come to genus I suppose.
