Yes, a Telamonia

One of the reddish brown, anonymous ones with many look-alikes, and hard to learn to recognize. I know I should have taken more pictures, but I didn’t this time. It’s supposed to be a common species here, so I might be able to do better next year.

Is this a Telemonia? Do you have photos of the spores?
