Collection location: Walking Iron Park, Dane Co., Wisconsin, USA [Click for map]

Who: Steve Nelsen (sfnelsen)

No specimen available

Trichoglossum sp.? Or is it a Geoblossum? I am not good at telling. Ones brought back had a flattened hymenial surface, to 1.5×.6 cm. Stem looks finely hairy. blackish asci in hymenium maybe 110 × 14 microns. Also are septate ‘paraphyses’ with sections roughly 11 microns wide and long. Spores smoky, 7-septate, ~83×7 microns. I do not know this one.

Probably not. They have dark, pointed setae in the hymenium, and you don’t mention any.. They can usually be seen under a handlens as well.
Check if any of the Geoglossum species in this key is a match instead (I didn’t succeed..):
