and I realize I have something similar to this observation. I thought they were Peziza that I couldn’t identify. Check 315239. If they are what you need for your research. I can try to find them too.

do you think you will be able to find the species this year? I have material from PNW and I greatly desire to have a collection from east North America… Pleas, let me know, thank you!

Dear Eva,

thank you very much for your kind answer, I am happy you would contribute to our research. The aim of our study is to i) investigate phylogenetic relationship of American and European Sarcosphaera species (one or more biological species?) – based on DNA sequencing; ii) investigate chemistry of fruit bodies: Sarcosphaera is known to hyperaccumulate arsenic.

For the purpose we need dried material of American Sarcosphaera (mature ascocarp, when possible) with collection data (location, date, name of collector, symbiotic trees on site.

And what is really important, we also need a dried part of ascocarp (one half or more material) perfectly cleaned from substrate debris (use knife, wet towel or even tap water to clean the debris).

I am sorry for being such demanding. If I can reciprocate in any way, let me know. Do not hesitate to contact me, any questions will be answered (borovicka@gli.cas.cz).

is there a possibility that you would find this species at your site again? I need American material for scientific purposes…

Let me know, thanks!
