Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

Specimen available

Found these as a scattering of white spots on the inside of rotting red fir bark. Put them under the scope, and took a look. Working with Brian Perry we got an id here of Hyaloscypha hyalina.

Hard to tell what they are at all by eye, very small white spots.
