When: 2018-05-23

Collection location: Bald Eagle State Park, Pennsylvania, USA [Click for map]

Who: Dave W (Dave W)

No specimen available

Collected white dust that fell off onto a microscope slide and then found “spores” at 400×. Suspected these may be conidia, but there seems to be very little information available about size shape of various Xylaria conidia. Eventually found an online source with photos of Xylaris conidia that matched these.
