Thanks for the comments Danny, yes that the main problem trying to ID from images. Yes I do have a dissecting scope but I did not collect the discs at that time as the wood was particularly hard. Next time I’m there I’ll get some and put the images up for you. However, this ID was confirmed several years ago on specimens I sent to the herbarium and I have been finding what appears to be the same for many years now.

like a species of Hypocrea/Trichoderma, but it’s difficult to make out perithecia from the photos provided. do you have access to a dissecting scope, and if so, could you take a photo through the eyepiece?

beautiful find!
