if the circumstances under which you observed them are different from those of this observation, the new find deserves its own entry. There is one exception: If you can say with absolute certainty that you’ve rediscovered the exact same specimen as the one pictured here, it would not be inappropriate to upload your newer images to this observation. Otherwise, give the new ones a new observation to call their their own.

should i make anew observation or add the pics to this one?

i would say you did some great detactive work, those look very similiar.and they are even from BC as well.

but the fruiting is big now and i even found another area with a small fruiting.

i found out today that they are not strictly hemlock cone decomposers. i found them growing from dead ferns as well.

the better. I tried poking around AscoFrance (http://www.ascofrance.com/index.php?r=bdd&page=search) for a matching substrate (‘Tsuga,’ ‘hemlock,’ ‘cone,’ ‘pruche,’ or ‘pomme’) but found nothing useful. Honestly, Ascomycota could be a stretch at this point without more detail. tentative guesses going on these photos are Guepina/Guepiniopsis/Heterotextus, Cudoniella or some out there asco I’ve never heard of.

good luck!

gelatinous is a decent way to describe it, to be honest i really failed to feel the little bugger up alot . it was so small my camera was having a hard time picking it up. so i spent quite a while just doing that . then my dog was in the creek and distracted me and i moved on. it seems like i should brought home a herbarium specimen as no one seems to know what it is. good thing its almost the weekend and i leave things where i find them. so i can go back on saturday.

hey river how ya doing? been getting out ?
