No specimen available

Lichenicolous anamorphic basidiomycete on unidentified lichen found on fallen hardwood branch. “A relatively frequent lichenicolous fungus known from Europe and North America, on many different host species”, reference below. So tiny, these specimens are difficult to photograph unless through a microscope. I counted 10 specimens per mm.

Found this quite accidentally while following my new “protocol” for hand lens examination of all lichen:)

Very nice!

Count yourself in the 0.001% of the US population that knows what this thing is!
