Pulvinula miltina possible?
Juuso Äikäs, 13-07-2020 12:08
Yesterday I found some Pulvinulas growing on clay-rich soil near a pond.

I thought the species might be Pulvinula convexella (= P. constellatio), but the spores are fairly small compared to some sources (although there seems to be broad variety between different sources). I'm thinking about the possibility of P. miltina.


I measured 15 spores from a spore print in water and the diameter was 14-15 microns.


There are many fresh expert approved sightings of P. miltina in the Danish svampe.databasen.org. In GBIF there are sightings from European countries and Australia and New Zealand. But I also found a comment by Nicolas Van Vooren on this forum from few years ago that P. miltina is an Australian species and possibly endemic.


So has there been some new study that has cleared this matter or is there still confusion about this species?

Re : Pulviluna miltina possible?
Avec des spores de 14-15 µm, des paraphyses qui ne semblent pas divisées au sommet, je pencherais pour Pulvinula globifera

Re : Pulviluna miltina possible?
Hello Gilbert and others,
does anywhere a key about this genus exist? - a key that contains most taxa and is to some extens "modern"?
Best, Lothar

Hi Juuso

Have you tried if the asci have croziers?
It is a very important character in this genus.

Une clé dans un article de Pfister dont je n'ai plus la référence en tête.

Re : Pulviluna miltina possible?
Thanks for the replies and the link. The sample is already drying but tomorrow I'll take a better look at the asci and paraphyses and post some new pics.

Re : Pulvinula miltina possible?
I measured a few asci and they were 195-225 x 16-17 µm. The ascus bases are tapering and with croziers. At least some paraphyses are branched and up to 2.5 µm thick. 

I checked the article and this doesn't seem to fit any species fully. P. convexella and P. miltina seem to be closest. The former should have bigger spores and asci and the latter shouldn't have croziers and should have an abrupt base (however the article did mention that in some specimens of P. miltina there were occasional croziers).

So, still confused :).

Re : Pulvinula miltina possible?
Hi Juuso
I think Pulvinula miltina, described with or without croziers, fits well with your harvest (YAO & SPOONER, 1996),(RIFAI,1968).

Re : Pulvinula miltina possible?
Thanks for the opinion. This might be an interesting collection if this is the case.

Re : Pulvinula miltina possible?
Some months ago we have collected Pulvinula orichalcea [= Pulvinula globifera (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Le Gal s. Le Gal], a taxon with absolutely no croziers. This finding will be 'published soon in the spanish journal Errotari.
I would advise you to keep looking at the base of the asci to try to see if, it looks like in all your photos, the asci have croziers.
