Observation 67008: Athelia Pers.

It was fruiting on burnt wood.

This fits Athelia well, but I didn’t get very far on species. It keyed to binuleospora/decipens couplet but the spores are shaped more like decipens (i.e, they are just ellipsoid, not pyriform), but it has clamps like binuleospora.

Species Lists


4.9-6.2 X 3.1-3.4, in cotton blue
clamps were scattered, common in some hyphae and not in others. I did see connections between the two types of hyphae though.
