Wow. I’m shocked

to see that this is such an outlier observation on MO. Even on MyCoPortal, where there is a bit more of a concentration in this part of TN, it’s pretty rare in the east.

It’s certainly overlooked often. I’ve only found it when I was specifically combing through moss for weird little things like this.

What an oddball species!

Never seen it here in PA. If I had, I would have spent a lot of time combing through sources on Ascos looking for a lead. Plenty of observations from CA and PNW locations. Looks like it may be one that favors cool/cold periods in areas of otherwise mild climate.
