A non-lichenised fungus?
Jennifer Fiorentino, 28-07-2021 15:26
Would be very happy to receive your opinion on this. I examined the fruiting bodies of this fungus thinking it was a lichen as there seems to be a greyish white thallus present. It was growing on the bark of an old, coastal carob tree in the Mediterranean. The black fruiting bodies were between 0.1 - 0.3mm diameter. A TS revealed a hymenium of about 110um height and a dark hypothecium. The 3- septate spores were dark reddish-brown, 23-32 x 9 -16um. Too long and wide to fit any Diplotomma/Buellia Mediterranean lichen species I know of. Would this be a non-lichenised fungus? Many thanks in advance.

Re : A non-lichenised fungus?
Dear Jennifer,
compare with Stigmatodiscus - see the following freely available publications:
https://doi.org/10.1007/s13225-016-0356-y
https://doi.org/10.1007/s11557-018-1435-0
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5788271/

I do not see any gel sheath surrounding the ascospores in your pics which are diagnostic for Stigmatodiscus - but this may be due to the fact that the ascospores illustrated are very old and dead, and probably also due to the slide preparation/mounting medium.

Concerning spore measurements and shape, this could be Stigmatodiscus oculatus, but one would need more clear pics of the ascomata, a thinner section of the ascomata and more detailed pictures of living ascospores to evaluate the gel sheath and septation.

Best,
Hermann
