Observation 46006: Nectria sensu lato

When: 2008-12-15

Collection location: Cerro Punta, Tierras Altas District, Chiriquí Province, Panama [Click for map]

Who: Danny Newman (myxomop)

No specimen available

On wood. One fruit body ≈ 1-2mm.

Photographed at the fullest macro capacity my equipment was capable of at the time, though on a persistently shaky tripod. I suspect these are just primordia of something whose mature fruit bodies weren’t present at the time.

Equally interesting as these peach-pink primordia are the small red spherical growths adjacent to and beneath them, most visible in the second photo immediately to the right of the fruit body at the center of the frame. I’d almost guess that the slightly darker, pointed tips are ostioles, assuming these are fungal.
