When: 2018-05-02

Collection location: Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Notes:
On the ground in hardwood forest.

Paraphyses slightly thicker near the tips. Found one example of what I think is an ascus, but spores are not visible inside. Micro mounted in Meltzers, but there was no obvious amyloid reaction on what I believe is an ascus. Immature? Photo of micro appears to show slight darkening of tube/ascus near the apex.
