Original Herbarium Label: Dacrymyces ovisporus Bref.
Most of the Dacrymyces species produce spores that are septate. Dacrymyces ovisporus is an exception, since its cells are divided in two planes and produce the brick-like pattern of cells within each spore.

This species was first found in North America by Prof. R. Bandoni (UBC) in Vancouver in 1963. The Observatory Hill collection of Dacrymyces ovisporus appears to be the second one in North America.
