Hi to all These gregarious ascomata grew on vegetable debris and very moist wood near the water level in a mountain stream. Its size was reaching up to 0.3 mm and they are whitish and glabrous, only furfuraceous, not hairy, not setose around the perithecial (?) neck. I don't know if they have an ostiole. Spores filiform and multiseptate, 110-155 x 4 micr. Do you have any idea? Many thanks Enrique

These colonies of beautiful conidia grew on sporodochia on Acer branches 10-12 mm in diameter around pseudothecia of Splanchnonema pupula. Although it seems that the asexual morph of this fungus would be in the genus Stegonsporium, could there be a relationship between the two?Thanks again<br />

Hi to all. What's your opinion about this Thecotheus species that grows on cow dung. The spores are apiculate and reticulate, not only verrucose. Thecotheus lundqvistii seems to be close to our collection but there are any reference to the spore reticulation for this species in the keys (AAs, Doveri & Coué...). Many thanks! Enrique

Hi forum<br />These gregarious, superficial, small (200-250 microns in diam.), hairy perithecia were growing on a thin white subiculum on decorticated hardwood (Alnus?). The perithecia do not appear to react in KOH, or at least do not give a reddish or purple color. (Bionectriacee?) The bicellular ascospores maybe finelly verrucose. The perithecia are covered by a thick coat of yellowish hairs with finely spiny walls. No anamorph I have seen.<br />Have you some idea for this collection?<br />Many thanks again<br />

Hi forum<br />This Geopora up to 50 mm in diameter, completely free and open, grew under Corylus avellana on a basic soil.<br />The spores are ellipsoidal, always bigutulate, with obtuse rounded poles and with lateral walls tending to be parallel. No key to the genus has been satisfactory to me in attempting to resolve this collection and only Benkert's key (Z.

Hello forum<br />Tiny apothecia growing in incubated deer dung. The hairs had any septa and the dextrinoid reaction of the hairs is inconsistent but sometimes present especially towards the base.<br />The elongate ascospores do not seem fit well with the broadly ellipsoidal or subspherical ones described by Marchal for Lasiobolus (Lachnea) lasioboloides, but the absence of septa seems more characteristic of Lasiobolus than of Trichobolus deextrinoideosetosus.<br />What do you think?<br />Many thanks in advance

At first, they are black in color and completely enclosed.<br />Now that they are more developed, they are unfolding. The outside turns brown, the inside yellow.<br /><br />The top of the asci turns blue with Lugol.<br />Size of the asci: 110-150 mu long and 9-10 mu wide.<br /><br />The spores have two, sometimes three oildrops and little oildrops between it.<br />Size of the spores: 10-16 mu long and 4-7 mu wide.<br />Q= 2.5<br /><br />Regards, <br />Ronald Morsink

Hi to all<br />This fungus was collected at Somiedo (1350 m) on herbaceous stems, perhaps of Umbelliferae. It makes subepidermial orange perithecia KOH negative 0.2-0.4 mm, with only the obtuse papilla raising the periderm of the host. I think they are glabrous, the hairs we can see maybe belong to the stem host.<br />The ascospores are smooth,  1-septate, with conspicuous large lipid content. The asci have a conspicuous, refractive, cianophilou, Melzer negative apical apparatus.<br />Have you some idea? Could be a Nectriella species?<br />Many thanks in advance

These shortly stipitate brownish apothecia grew on decorticated brances of Acer pseudoplatanus still attached to the tree at 1300 m of altitude.<br />I think it fits well with the Karsten's and Carpenter's concept of Cyathicula complicata with IKI negative asci, although Dennis describes it as a non-dark fungus with asci IKI blue.<br />What do you think?<br />

Hi there,<br /><br />today I was in Freibourg (Black Forest) for collecting some culms of Phyllostachys. At home, there appeared a pale coloured nectria-like species on one of the culms, of which I am sure it belongs to Protocreopsis. After looking for similar species, I have found an article about Protocreopsis caricicola growing on Carex from Mecklenburg, so this could be the second recolt in germany (?).<br /><br />Sp 13-14x3-3,4µm, with one central septation, smooth. Asci 50-60x5,5-7µm, 8sp, no apical apparatus seen in CB. Whole fruitbodies are covered with hyaline, thick-walled hairs and are embedded into a whitish cotton-like subiculum. Older fruitbodies get a yellow colour. Wall KOH-, CB-, 20-30µm thick constisting of 7-10 rows of parenchymatous cells and an up to 35µm thick layer of covering hyphae/hairs.<br /><br />12-06-16, Freibourg, on old shoots of Phyllostachys sp.<br /><br />regards,<br />björn<br /><br />
Enrique Rubio, 09-02-2014
<p>Hi to all</p> <p>These pulvinate erumpent stromata grew on corticated wood of Quercus robur. The very polymorphic and aberrant ascospores are mostly in 4-spored asci. It could be the Lopadostoma dryophilum of the recent paper of Jaklitsch, Fournier. Rogers and Voglmayr?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 17-03-2017
HI again<br />Blackish, not setose pseudothecia up to 0.2 mm in diameter are found subepidermial on the setae of the sporophytes of dead moss Ceratodon purpureus. The greenish smooth, dimorphic ascospores are &lt; 20 microns long and the asci are bitunicate. I feel this a meber of the family Venturiaceae, maybe in the genus Lizonia or Venturia. <br />Have you some idea?<br />Thanks again

I've seen this fungus many times before, and it seems to be quite common and plentiful on dead stems of Filipendula ulmaria. This is a finding from yesterday, found near shoreline.<br /><br />Spores slightly clavate, measuring 8.9 - 9.9 × 2.1 - 2.5 µm, OCI = 1. <br /><br />The asci measure 42.3 - 56.5 × 6.6 - 7.3 µm, with croziers, IKI+(bb).<br /><br />Paraphyses +- cylindrical, some a bit swollen. No hairs.<br /><br />I assume this is a Pyrenopeziza, and maybe someone knows the species?

Hi to everybody:<br /><br />On a copious and cottony white subiculum situated on a rotten piece of hardwood I have collected these gergarious, superficially, easily separated, ostiolate, piriform, yellowish, orange or vinaceous small perithecia up to 300-350 microns. KOH negative.<br />At this moment the ascomata are depauperate, collapsed and only part-spores I can see, but two days ago  it had many cilindrical asci with 1-septate, apiculate ascospores, disarticulating in two conical part-spores.<br /><br />I think in the genus Arachnocrea and could be A. stipata.<br />What do you think?<br />Thanks!<br />Enrique

<p>Hi to everybody and specially Jacques Fournier</p> <p>Today we have examined these gregarious stromata up to 40 mm high growing on buried seeds of Cornus sanguinea or Crataegus monogyna. We don't know what the host is because they are living together and the stromata were growing under both trees.</p> <p>After reading wonderfull Fournier's keys we are observing that our ascospores are greater: 12-16 x 5-7 versus 11-13 x 4.6-5.9 sec.

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>This Anthostomella grew on wet dead stems of Ammophila arenaria. The fungus makes clypeate single blackish perithecia with papilate ostioles. Asci with a massive IKI positive apical apparatus longer than broad. Ascospores broadly inequilateral with spiral germ slit and peculiar partial gel sheaths at the poles. I think don't fits with A. spiralis or A. umbrinella.</p> <p>Some idea for help me?</p> <p>Thanks again </p>

Hi my friends<br />I'd like to know your opinion on these minute (up to 375 microns), scattered, blackish, superficial, verrucose, sessile sporodochia, growing on Fagus wood near the stromata of Hypocrea cf. minutispora.<br />The muriform conidia, similar to hand grenades, seem to be frontally compressed. My friend Angel Pintos suggested me Berkleasmium or Dictysporium. What do you think?<br />Many thanks in advance<br />Enrique<br />

Dear friends:<br />We have collected on very wet decorticated hardwood close to the water level at 1000 m of altitude these gregarious, glabrous, yellow ascomata up to 1.3 mm in diam. They are shortly stipitate by a stout and short stipe or almost turbinate.<br /><br /><br />The asci have an apical apparatus laterally enlarged, blue or purple in IKI, croziers (+) and the spores are not septate (or only the hypermature ones). Medullary excipulum with textura intricata. Ectal excipulum of interwowen hyphae. Any textura globulosa or prismatica we have seen.   <br />The paraphyses have low refringent content as fragmenting and cylindrical VB's.<br /><br />Have you any idea?<br /><br /><br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique

Hi to everybody<br />These small white and subsessile ascomata 0.2-0.3 mm diameter grew gregariously on Schoenoplectus (Scirpus) stems.<br />The IKI b (Calycina-type) asci have croziers. It has non-lanceolate filiform paraphyses, with a slightly enlarged obtuse apex containing some small refractive VBs (arrowed). The marginal hairs are very inconspicuous and they are made by two or three short cells with a short, subacute terminal element.<br />I want to think in a Psilachnum species or even a Calycina (turgidella, ellisii...) but this collection doesn't seem to adapt well to anything I know.<br />Do you have any ideas that could help me? <p>Many thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 21-04-2022
Can you think of any ideas that might help me with this pyrenomycete that forms minute blackish, subsuperficial, gregarious, more or less roundish, glabrous, not setose ascomata on leaves of Populus nigra?<br />My first idea was Mycosphaerella, but I can't find any populicolous species that fits well to its characters. The Ascospores are hyaline and do not appear to change colour, at least at this stage of maturation.<br />Many thanks again

Hi to all: I'd like to know your opinion about this Geopyxis species growing in a Picea abies forest at 1000 m of altitude. The ascomata are substipitate up to 2-2.5 cm. and the flesh has an strongly and foetid odour as M. foetidus or M. brassicolens. I doubt with G. foetida Velen. or the oldest G. alpina Höhnel, but I cannot translate from Höhnel german original description of this taxon, and I do not know if this author describes the stinking smell in your species.

Hello Everyone,<br /><br />I have found fruit bodies of what I assume to be a species from the genus Ophiobolus. They were growing on a damp, dead, undetermined, thin herbaceous stem and on drying, the fruit bodies have collapsed noticably.<br /><br />The Shoemaker 1976 paper does not seem to contain a species matching the characteristics of mine. I notice some clear similarities between the shape and structure of the spores of my sample and those of the 16th May 2012 forum post by Enrique Rubio, (which was concluded to be an undescribed species). In mine though, the partly swollen cell is at the centre of the much shorter spores.<br /><br />I have attached an image of the fruit bodies and a sketch of the microscopy. I imagine that it will turn out to be another undescribed species, unless anyone can identify it.<br /><br />Thank you,<br />With Best Wishes,<br />Peter.

Hi again<br />These small, blackish, somewhat setose, pyriform perithecia 0.3-0.4 mm high, grew more or less superficially on thiny Clematis vitalba stems, 0.5-0.7 mm in diameter, lying on the ground. The asci appear to have an inconspicuous, refractive, yodonegative apical apparatus and contain eight partially and obliquely fused ascosspores almost always in pairs. One end porate and they often form an eccentric transverse septum.I think it could be a Synaptospora species but I can't find any species of this genus that fits well to the characters of this one.<br />Many thanks in advance

Hi to everybody <p>I'd like to know your opinion about these very small, scattered, white, shortly stipitate, cupulate, urceolate, up to 0.25 microns high, with ciliate margins, covered by fascicles of glassy strongly refractive hairs IKI negative only with basal lumen, up to 52 x 4.5, glassiness lost in KOH 10%.</p> <p>Asci up to50 x 8, 8-spored, IKI bb, arising from croziers. Paraphyses filiform. Ectal excipulum of an elongated textura prismatica.</p> <p>The apothecia grew on dead leaves of Saxifraga babiana subsp. septentrionalis, a cantabric endemism with viscid leaves growing on calcareous rocks at 1700 m of altitude (La Farrapona-Somiedo-Asturias).</p> <p>I feel the correct genus could be Urceolella and so it seems to be close to Urceolella saxifragae Svrcek that grows on Saxifraga aizoon with somewhat similar characters but longer ascospores and IKI negative asci (fide Raitviir). I attach Svrcek and Raitviir's description of U. saxifragae.</p> <p> </p> <p>Many thanks in advance</p>

Dear all.<br />This ostropalean fungus grew on hanging Rubus stems in central-western Spain. The erumpent ascomata are very similar to those of Ostropa barbara, but the orange-coloured covering seems to differ from that of this species. I have not found anything in Sherwood's monograph. so do you have any ideas?<br />Many thanks in advance.<br />

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>Can you help me with this pyreno with roundish black and subsuperficial pseudothecia up to 0.3 mm on stems of Ammophila arenaria growing on coastal sand dunes?</p> <p>The bitunicate asci are (4)-8 spored and the greenish ascospores seem to be smooth. Pseudoparaphyses are present.</p> <p>I think this fungus could be in the genera Amphisphaeria or Didymosphaeria. What do you think?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 07-04-2013
Dear friends<br />Can this fungus with so short and roundish appendages be Melanconis alni ?<br />It grew on Alnus glutinosa and the valsoid stromata have yellowish disc <br /><br /><br />Thanks again

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>My friend F.J. Balda sent me this fungus growing on very wet, semirotten, wood of Pinus sylvestris that makes groups of inmersed and blackish perithecia 0.5-0.6 mm high inside + or - developped blackish stromata.

Hi to everyone<br />I would like to know your opinion about these completely superficial and ostiolate perithecia covered by a clypeoid structure that grew isolated on Pteridium aquilinum rachis. The gregarious hemispheric or broadly conical ascomata measure 150-200 microns in diameter, the asci have a sharply cut base and a small Melzer negative apical apparatus and contain eight hyaline, narrowly ellipsoid, mostly 3 septate ascospores. The paraphyses are abundant, some of them capitulate.<br />With these data I pressume that it could be a fungus in the order Diaporthales, but I do not get any concrete results.<br />Any help would be welcome<br /> <p>Many thanks again. </p>
Enrique Rubio, 15-02-2017
Hi again<br />These small ostiolate, KOH-negative, perithecia were clustered on a stroma erumpent from bark of Ulex. Over the perithecia are small amounts of white cottony conidiophores that perhaps belong to the asexual morph of the fungus (see photo 3). The ascospores are minutely verrucose.<br />Could this fungus Bionectria ochroleuca be?<br />Thanks again for your help
Enrique Rubio, 26-11-2012
Dear friends<br /><br />We have collected these small (up to 0.15 mm), gregarious, black, superficial, globose and hairy perithecia on Quercus wood.<br />The prithecia grew among conidiomata of a dematiaceous mould and their ascospores breaking into equal-sized part-spores of 7-9 x 3-4 microns.<br />Could this fungus be Chaetosphaeria vermicularioides or Ch. preussii? Can these conidiomata belong to the anamorphic state?<br /><br />Many thanks for your help

Hi to all<br /><br /> Last week-end we have collected these small, gregarious, pale witish or amber (when old), subturbinate or shortly stipitate up to 1mm high and 0.7 mm broad ascomata growing on male cones of Pinus radiata lying on the wet ground. It seems to have any blackened stromatized zones at their insertion on the host.<br /> <br />The hymenium is never convex but it is plane to slightly concave.<br /> <br />The ascospores are smooth, broadly fusiform and they seem to have 1 nucleus.<br />Asci with croziers, 8-spored, with an apical apparatus weakly euamyloid, very difficult to observe and I don't know their type (Sclerotinia-type, Hymenoscyphus-type?) .. Living paraphyses with many rounded Vb's, hyaline to yellowish.<br /><br />Ectal excipulum is built by roundish to vesicular cells in a tetura globulosa-subangularis. No hairs in the apothecial margin; only cilyndrical to subclabvate elements with the same Vb's.<br /><br /><br />I think perhaps this fungus belongs to the Sclerotiniaceae or Helotiaceae. I'm not sure...<br />Many thanks for help me<br /><br />Enrique     <br /><br />

Hi to all:<br /><br />We don't know this nice Otidea species that grows on calcareous and submediterranean situation under Corylus avellana  in the north of Spain. Ascomata are 40 mm broad and 30 mm high, substipitate, split down on one side. Hymenium vivid ochraceous. Excipulum furfuraceous and lilac-violaceous. These colours quickly fading with age.<br />Spores 15,0-17,4 x 7,0-8,3 µm; Q =2,03-2,39. Medullary excipulum tectura intricata. Ectal excipulum angularis to prismatica with chains of 2-4 elements with incrustate and pigmentate walls that form the external furfuration.<br /><br />When we collect this fungus, we think in O. caeruleopruinosa, but the color of the hymenium and the spore size are very different. We don't know O. lilacina, but maybe our species is unknow.<br />What do you think? <br />Many thanks for your help

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>I need again your help with this fungus with subcuticular multi-perithecia growing together under the bark with their long necks converging, on an small branch of Carpinus betulus. Asci clavate 20-29 x 4-5, gradually tapering to a very slender, shortly stipitate, base. Paraphyses tapering, septate, much longer than the asci.</p> <p>I feel it is close to Calosphaeria microsperma Ellis &amp; Everh. that grows on Carpinus too, but the ascospores in the diagnosis seem to be smaller and no so boomerang-shaped .</p> <p>Have you a better idea?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

On dead branches of Sorbus aucuparia still attached to the tree. <br />The fungus appears to form erumpent, blackish, stromata on which are placed some very small, more or less ovoid, blackish, glabrous pseudothecia, containing cylindrical, bitunicate asci with eight, greyish or yellowish-grey dictyospores, which react to give a bluish-grey colour in Melzer's reagent. The ascospore is not constricted at the septa. I rule out a Cucurbitaria, perhaps a Capronia with hairless pseudothecia? Teichospora?<br />Any ideas would be welcome

<p>Hi again</p> <p>These gregarious, small (up to 0.5 mm high, 0.8 mm broad), shortly stipitate, elastic, fully withish ascomata, not reddening with the age were growing on old leaves of indeterminate monocots of I think grasses, not sedges but I'm not absolutely sure, at 1400 m of altitude on acid montane soil. Apothecial margins are only finely fimbriate.</p> <p>Ascospores hyaline, 1-septate, with may small lipid guttules that seem to form conidia. Asci IKI r (obviously b after KOH pret.), 8-spored, with no croziers or only small protuberances of abortive croziers. Excipulum built by a gelatinised tissue (textura oblita).</p> <p>I think in Calycina as the correct genus for it but I don't know a good species that matches with it.

<p>Hi again</p> <p>The brownish hairs of these narrowly sessile apothecia are sepate, granulate, with crystal drusses at their tips, so I think it could belong to the genus Brunnipila.

Hi again<br />Could this fungus be simply Nectria cinnabarina on Populus nigra bark? The perithecia are up to 0.5 mm, not collapsing when dry, with a dark mammate region around the ostiole. Conidiomata synnmatous, conidia ovoid, smooth and hyaline. Ascomatal walls slightly purple in KOH or lactic acid, with no clear psedoparenchimatous structure.<br />In afirmative case, is common this so long tubercularia anamorph?<br />Thanks again for your help.

Hi to all<br />I have found this fungus that makes erumpent, subinmersed, roundish, carbonaceous and blackish perithecia, isolated or in small groups of 3-4 covered by a whitish tomentum at the young age.<br /><br />They grow on the bark of a spiny tree or shrub that by the moment I don't know. The place is situated in the river mouth of the Nalón river in the Cantabric sea, with a obvious oceanic, saline, influence.<br />The spores have a straight germ slit, difficult to observe, much less than spore lenght.<br />I think in Nemania maritima<br />What do you think?<br />Thanks again
Enrique Rubio, 14-05-2022
These sessile or subsessile apothecia, more or less turbinate, allways isolated, never in groups,  0.2-0.7 mm in diameter and blackish-brown in colour, erumpent through the bark of branches fallen to the ground in a plantation of Pseudotsuga menziesii at 1300 m of altitude in northern Spain .<br />The apothecia have no ionomidotic reaction in KOH and the asci form very scanty primary ascosspores, difficult to see, but probably broadly ellipsoidal or subspherical, and finally the asci are filled with a multitude of small, subcylindrical to nearly allantoid, hyaline ascoconidia.<br />From the appearance of the primary spore it could perhaps be Tympanis tsugae Groves, which may now belong to Claussenomyces or Vexillomyces.<br /> <p>What do you think?</p>

The perithecia are free or joined forming groups of up to 8-9 perithecia.<br /><br />Maybe a Linostomella species?<br />Thanks again for help me<br /><br />Enrique
Found 01-03-09, Korinthia Greece, hypogeous in humus of Pinus nigra. They is zygomyketes or immature ascomycetes???? Dimensions of species is 0,5 cm. Constituted from small small pieces. They easily broke They is Youngiomyces multiplex????

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>My friend J. Linde, a great discover of minute fungi, collected these small, white, downy, shortly stipitate, briefly cupulate later pulvinate apothecia, 0.3-0.5 mm in diameter on seeds (samara) of Acer pseudoplatanus. </p> <p>Thea asci, 8-spored, are IKI negative and with croziers. The spores have only few minute guttules. Excipulum with textura + or - prismatica. The paraphyses are cylindrical, without conspicuous Vb's in water but stain in Crb. Close to the margin they become branched as the excipular hairs (marked with red arrows in the pic).</p> <p>The very dense excipular hairs have finger-like protuberances as the Mollisina species. I think it could be a Mollisina but I don't know a species that fits well with our fungus.</p> <p> </p> <p>Thanks for your opinion</p>

Hi to all<br /><br /><br />My friend J. Linde found these gregarious, + or - sphaerical, semiinmersed or subsuperficial, blackish, uniperitheciate, small (up to 0.4 mm) and hairy perithecia on semirotten wood of Pseudotsuga menziesii in a shady place.<br /><br /><br />The cylindrical asci seem to have an very inconspicuous, refractive, apical apparatus IKI negative and they have 8 greenish or greenish brown ascospores many of them with a thick transversal septum randomly oriented inside the asci. The ascospores seem to have also a minute polar pore but I'm not sure of this character.  <br /><br /><br />Have you some idea for this fungus?<br /><br />Thanks again<br />Enrique

Bonjour a tous: J'ai recolté cet Lachnum sur les tiges de F. ulmaria, et voilà que j'ai des doutes sur son identité. Asci up to 50-60 micr, IKI bb, 8-spored, with clearly croziers. Spores 6.5-10 x 1.5-2. Les poils sont pourvus d'un capuchon cristallin qui arrive à disparaître après son écrasement. Je pense á Lachnum morthieri (Cooke) Sacc., selon les clés de H. O. Baral = L. nudipes var. minor Dennis?. Lachnum clavigerum il n'a pas des croziers Quelle opinion avez-vous sur ce sujet affaire?

This pyrenomycete grew inconspicuously on Ulex wood at an altitude of 400 m. The necks are relatively long and furrowed and the spores recurved but smaller and less recurved than expected for Eutypa crustata.<br />Maybe Peroneutypa obesa?<br />Do you have any ideas that can help me?<br />Thanks again<br />

Do you have some idea that help me with this non-stromatic pseudotecia up to 0.2 mm in diam. inmersed on stems of an Equisetum species? The ascospores are hyaline at first, but pale brownish with age, with the lower cell narrower than the upper one.<br />Many thanks in advance.<br />
Enrique Rubio, 05-09-2021
These minute subsessile pale pinkish apothecia up to 400 microns in diameter grew on Urtica stems at 1750 m of altitude. The margins are denticulate by the existence of fasciculate hairs with smooth or only very slightly asperulate walls at the base of the terminal elements. These hairs, as well as the paraphyses, have well visible VBs inside the cells. Asci IKI b with croziers. Excipulum globulosa to angularis. Ascospores OCI = 0.<br />I think in the genus Psilocistella rather than Psilachnum or Cistella, but I would like to know your opinion.

Hi friends<br /><br />These isolated, non-stromatic, blackish, glabrous and up to 0.5 mm high perithecia, with a short conical papilla, were found semi-immersed or subsuperficial on indeterminate semirotten hardwood in an environment far from water, with perithecia of Natantiella ligneola.<br />The asci have a conspicuous and very refringent apical apparatus, so much so that at times it even appears amyloid. Its characters seem compatible with those of the genus Ceratosphaeria, but the perithecia lack long necks and the spores have smaller dimensions that seem to rule out C. lampadophora. Do you have any idea that could help me?

They have one or more blackish-brown setae and I suppose, although I am not sure, that the conidia could be the ones you can see in the photo: hyaline, ellipsoidal and with some small guttules.<br />The pycnidia are accompanied by apothecia of Cejpia hystryx.<br />Many thanks in advance for your help.<br />

<p>Hi to everybody</p> <p>This enigmatic pyreno on Fagus sylvatica old leaves at the sea level (I never seen it at the montaneous level where Fagus is very common in my country) forms blackish, scattered conical, ostiolate perithecia 0.3-0.5 mm in diam. on bleached patches with irregular margins at both sides of the leaf.</p> <p>The globose to pyriform perithecium is covered by a clypeate structure with an epidermoid texture. Asci narrowly fusiform up to 175 x 4 with a n small refringent apical apparatus only well visible in IKI (IKI negative) or cotton blue. Scolescospores filiform, hyaline, spirally disposed inside the asci, for exemple 150 x 1.</p> <p>I don't know a good genus for my fungus. Can you help me?</p> <p>Thanks in advance</p>

Hi to all:<br /><br />I have collected this Hypoxylon species that grows on Quercus robur bark, at 150 m of altitude, with pulvinate, coalescent and purplish grey stromata. KOH extractable pigments are chlorinaceous-olive. Asci IKI and Mlz. blue. Ascospores with a spore-lenght, straight to sigmoid, germ slit. Perispore dehiscent in KOH 10%.<br />The stromata seem to have ochraceous granules just beneath the surface.<br /><br />Maybe Hypoxylon porphyreum or only an Hypoxylon fuscum?.<br />Many thanks again for help me<br />Enrique

This pyrenomycete is very common on still attached branches of several trees and shrubs (Lonicera xylosteum, Rhamnus alaternus, Ligustrum, etc.) in the Botanical Garden of Gijón (Asturias, Spain).<br />The globose pseudothecia 0.4-0.5 mm in diameter are just inmersed under the periderm and they have a conspicuous flattened papilla. Mature golden brown dictyospores have a thin mucous sheath thickened at the ventral side and long terminal appendages.<br />Does anyone have any suggestions for this lophiostomataceous fungus?<br />Many thanks in advance<br />Enrique

These apothecia were growing on decaying leaves of Polytrichastrum formosusm. The apothecia are scattered, shortly stipitate. Disc brownish, briefly cupulate, later applanate or pulvinate, up to 1 mm in diameter. Excipulum minutely downy, whitish. Margin glabrous.<br />Asci 62-100 x 10-14, 8-spored, without croziers, the apical pore IKI b of the Calycina-type. Paraphyses with no refractive VBs, covered by a crystalline (?) yellowish-brown matter that stains in Crb. Ectal excipulum with hyaline textura prismatica-angularis-subglobulosa. Medullary excipulum of textura intricata, the hyphae covered by the same yellowish-brown matter of the paraphyses.<br />I feel this fungus is the same described by Spooner [Kew Bulletin 38(4):563-565 (1984)] under the name Bryoscyphus turbinatus (Fuckel) Spooner, but, in my opinion, the fungus is absolutely not a Bryoscyphus, because the lack of refractive VBs at the paraphyses and and the cellules of the ectal excipulum, and the apical pore of the Calycina-type. Furthermore the crystalline matter covering the paraphyses and the hyphae of the medullary excipulum is not present in the genus Bryoscyphus.<br />What genus is appropiate for this fungus? I don't know, but in my opinion not Bryoscyphus.<br />Probably the study of dry material did not allow a suitable study.<br />What do you think?
Enrique Rubio, 04-09-2012
Can this fungus be Diatrype undulata? I have collected it on Betula alba branches at 1600 m and I think could be this species but the macro/micro-differences with another Diatrype species as D. decorticata are very small. Off course, I don't know the conidia. Ostioles are conical, split and slightly protruding. Perithecia up to 500 microns long. I see any blue reaction of the apical pore in Mlz., IKI or KOH pret. (Rappaz says that the asci are I (+)!!)<br />What do you think?<br />Many thanks again
Enrique Rubio, 15-11-2022
These blackish, gregarious, immersed and non-stromatic perithecia were growing on very rotten hardwood. The macro-microscopic characters bring me close to the genus Barbatosphaeria, but with these long, 1-septate ascospores I find nothing in this genus that pleases me.<br />Do you have any ideas that could help me?<br />Many thanks in advance.
Lothar Krieglsteiner, 01-12-2022
when finding this on 8.7.2022 in the margin of National Park Blafjella (marshy, acid fjell vegetation), I was thinking of Cejpia hystrix because of dark color and substrate. But no way ....<br />The guttulate contents of spores, paraphyses and excipular end cells remind me of Graddonia. The spores I measured about 17-20/7-8 µm, the asci are strikingly hemiamyloid and without croziers (?). <br /> Does somebody have an idea?<br />Yours, Lothar

Hi again<br />These small (0.3-0.4 mm) narrowly sessile, whitish later amber-colour apothecia were growing on old stromata of pyrenomycetes on hardwood.<br />The excipulum is mader by angular/subangular, roundish hyaline thin-walled cells, brownish near the base. And the marginal cells are smooth and narrowly clavate.<br />Asci without croziers, IKI bb of the Calycina-type. Paraphyses filiform with no conspicuous content, no VBs.<br />I think this fungus could be near to the genus Parorbiiopsis non s.str.<br />How do you think?<br />Many thanks again

Cher amis: J'aimarais conaitre votre opinion sur cette Hyaloscypha sur les feuilles d'Eriophorum angustifolium á 1600-1700 m. Si les asques avaient des crochets, je choisirais de l'appeler( bien que je puisse être trompé) Hyaloscypha leuconica var. bulbopilosa, mais elles n'ont pas des crochets En suivant les clés de Huhtinen, j'arrive a H. leuconica var. leuconica, mais il le donne a cette spece un habitat lignicole.

Dear all<br />I would like to know your opinion about these small, rounded, blackish, more or less spherical, very small (up to 0.15 mm in diameter), most probably ostiolate but without necks, immersed in overwintered leaves of Ulmus glabra. From its characters it could perhaps fits in the genus Gnomoniella and perhaps in Gnomoniella carpinea although its spores are somewhat wider than those of this species.What do you think?<br />Many thanks again.<br /><br />Sorry, I just saw that Gnomoniella carpinea is a synonym of Apiosporopsis carpinea, a fungus that we usually collect on carpinus leaves near the site of the find.

Hi to everybody. Hi Christian (by the way, what a wonderfull pics of Pleomassaria!)<br />These small (up to 200-250 microns), gregarious, KOH-negative, superficial, not on a stroma, more or less glabrous perithecia, were found on Ulmus minor bark. They are not very well preserved, with no many ascospores for good measurements, but they seem to be smooth and with up to seven tranverse septa. Asci broadly fusiform. Peridium thick, up to 80 microns, complex, with an inner orange layer. No anamorph seen.<br />What do you think?

Dear forum<br />On the west coast in Flanders (B) we found a very small peziza-like fungus on bark of Acer, perhaps on algae, but not on lichen.<br />Fungus peziza-like very small (1 to 2 mm) with fan-shaped rim. Substipitate, somewhat triangular in side view.<br />Possibly curved hairs on the edge of the excipulum (see photo). Texture angular.<br />Occurs on bark (Acer), possibly on algae, but clearly not on the lichen nearby (Lecidella elaeochroma).<br />Spores 6.8 x 2.7 mu, hyaline, ellipsoid with two drops.<br />Ascen 8-spored, 40-45 x 4-6 mu<br />No reaction with lugol.<br />Can someone help me further?<br />Thanks<br />Carl<br /><br /><br />

Someone knows about that Pyrenomycete sur Alnus glutinosa. Spores two-celled, one of that brown at maturity, and longitudinal germ slit?
Enrique Rubio, 13-08-2019
Hi friends<br />These spherical or pyriform blackish perithecia, 0.2-0.3 microns in diameter, with coarse warts on the surface, grew on the hymenium of Phlebia aurea deforming their spines. I have not been able to see any blackish or hyaline setae on its walls. The spores are biporate and apiosporous. I feel that it is close to H. odontiae, but in the absence of setae I dare not say so.What do you think?<br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique<br />

<p>Hi to everybody</p> <p>This fungus with small (up to 0.8 mm), turbinate, shortly and narrowly stipitate, gregarious apothecia with pale yellowish hymenium and no blackish stipe was found on Vaccinium uliginosum leaves at 1700 m of altitude.</p> <p>The excipulum is made by roundish cells that make short, septate, obtuse hairs at the flanks. Marginal cells, as the paraphyses, are filled with many small roundish VBs that stain in CRb. Asci 120-141 x 13-14, IKI negative even after KOH-pret., with no croziers.</p> <p>I don't know a good genus for it.

Hello everyone<br />Pezicula fruiting bodies have been growing on the bark for several years in my yard, on Metasequoia glyptostroboides.<br />I am not able to define the genre myself and it seems quite interesting.<br />Original substrate that I have not found in the literature and very small fruiting bodies not similar to others known to me.<br />Now the fruiting bodies are still very poorly mature, but I decided to present the collection, hoping that they might be of interest to someone. I have the material to collect at my fingertips, so it won't be a problem.<br />Or maybe someone knows something about species on this type of substrate?<br />best regards<br />Mirek

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>I need your help again with this fungus growing on wet wood of Erica arborea at 1400 m of altitude. The superficial, sessile, gregarious, roundish, rough, papillate, ostiolate,pseudothecia are 0.4-0.8 microns in diam. and they grew on a sparse subiculum of brownish hyphae. Their walls are carbonaceous and the inner wall of the young stromata have ochraceous or reddish pigments that don't exist around the ostiole as in B. schiedermayeriana. The 8-spored asc are bitunicate and shortly stipitate. Pseudoparaphyses trabeculate. Mature ascospores are brownish, 1 septate (or with 2 more secondary septa), no appendages, no sheath.</p> <p>I think this fungus could belongs to the genus Byssosphaeria and maybe this is B. salebrosa. What do you think?</p> <p>Many thanks again</p>

Les deux champignons croissaient ensemble dans la même tige de Juncus. Je regrette de m’avoir trompé et pouvoir induire aux erreurs ou une critique le reste de collèges. Je vous demande des excuses par cela Zotto Baral informs me about a mistake in my card of N. melatephroides. Really, the asci in IKI of the low left part, are, indeed of N. eriophori. Both fungi was growing together in the same Juncus's stem I’m sorry to have mistaken and to induce to mistakes or critique to the rest of colleagues. I request my excuses for it

Hi to everybody <p>These very densely, gregarious apothecia were growing on the hymenium of a very decayed resupinate, poroid fungus on wood of Fagus sylvatica at 1000 m of altitude. The apothecia are white, shortly stipitate by a stout, broad, cylindrical pseudostipe. The white hymenium is briefly cupulate, later aplanate or only slightly convex, 200-500 microns in diameter. Excipulum downy, as the margin.</p> <p>The inconspicuous marginal cells are cylindrical or slightly clavate, smooth or finelly incrustate, but not verrucose as in Cistella species. Ectal excipulum of hyaline, roundish, angular to prismatical cells with no inclusions or VBs. Paraphyses optically empty, with no VBs.</p> <p>Asci 8-spored, IKI b or rb, with croziers.</p> <p>I think it could be near to Calycina guttulifera from Zotto's folder.</p> <p>What do you think?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hi again<br /><br />This material was sent to me from M. Tapia (Navarra, NE of Spain) as Hamatocanthoscypha species growing on rotten, blackish, leaves of Cupressus. The ascomata are minute, briefly stipitate and allways white.<br /><br />The spores are ovoid eguttulate or provided of 1-2 small polar guttules. Asi IKI negative (-), croziers positive (+). Paraphyses with any content. Ectal excipulum elongate of and + or - elongate textura prismatica. Hairs granulate, many of them uncinate.<br /><br />I think is a good Hamatocanthoscypha species that not fits well with H. obsoleta.

I'd like your opinion on this Seynesia (¿?) species growing on Arundo donax stems at the sea level, at the north of Spain. <p>The blackish, roundish, inmersed perithecia, single or in pairs, are more or less roundish, up to 1 mm in diam., beneath a thin clypeus. Only the papilla is visible on the peridermis of the host, but it is not surrounded by teeth-like flanges as described for Seynesia nobilis.</p> <p>The 8-spored asci  have a wedge-shaped, amyloid, subapical apparatus. The living paraphyses are filled with a conspicuous, refractive, oily content that not dissapear in NH4OH. The ascospores are brownish at maturity, smooth-walled, two celled, constricted at the septum, with a full length germ slit in each cell, a thin mucilaginous sheath surrounding the ascospores and an obtuse or short cylindrical, not really conical, cap-like appendage at each pole of the spore.</p> <p>I feel this species could be into the genus Seynesia, but I think it doesn't fit well with the somewhat known species of this genus (i.e. S. nobilis)</p> <p>What is your opnion</p> <p>Many thanks in advance</p>

Hi to verybody<br />I have tiny immersed or semi-immersed perithecia growing on apothecia of Bactrospora patellariodes in the Balearic Islands (Spain). The asci are polysporic and the mature spores are olive-brown with one transverse septum (exceptionally two). No conspicuous hamathecium. I think in the Muellerella lichenicola complex, but the spores are narrower than usually given to M. lichenicola st. sensu. Or perhaps a Bellemerella species?<br />What do you think?

Hi again,<br />another strange discomycete on the inner side of a piece of pine bark between green algae. Up to 0,8 mm, convex, ocher-yellow when young, later brownish red. Short stipitate, bright yellow on the underside. Hymenium up to 100 µm. Ascospores hyalin with sidespores, 0-7-septate, 28-36,5x7-8,5 µm, Asci 8-spored, 88-115 x 16-20 µm, with croziers, strong red porus-reaction with IKl, after KOH-treatment blue. Two types of paraphyses (or hairs?), one with brownish cap, incrustate up to 7 µm wide, the other hyaline clavate up to 3,5 µm wide.<br />Regards, Maren

Hi to everybody<br />I am surprised with these semi-inmersed perithecia growing in cow dung in southern Spain. There doesn't seem to be a well defined clypeus and the asci are neither amyloid nor dextrinoid, although they have an inconspicuous apical apparatus. The spores, surrounded by a wide gelatinous sheath after its expulsion from the asci, have no germ slits and they have a small caudal hyaline dwarf cell and an apical germinative pore.<br />In theory the closest genus should be Hypocopra, but there are many evidences and contradictions against this genus.<br />Do you have any idea that might help me?<br />
Enrique Rubio, 19-02-2021
These small, white, gregarious, broadly sessile apothecia, 0.2-0.3 mm in diameter, with glabrous margins, grew among algae and liverworts on corticated wood of Pseudotsuga menziesii near the sea.<br />The asci are ventricose, slightly dextrinoid in IKI, with croziers and a broad, very bluish apical apparatus in IKI, and contain eight spores already septate even inside the asci. The paraphyses are moniliform near the apex and the marginal hairs are similar and closely agglutinated.<br />It doesn't look like a Hyaloscypha, but I couldn't say to which genus it might belong, perhaps it could be an ascolichen?<br /> <p>Many thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 11-01-2017
Hi to everybody<br />Some time ago my friend M. Tapia, from Navarra (NE of Spain) sent me this strange, gregarious, turbinate, 0.2-0.5 mm in diam., pale grayish-brownish with brownish pruinose hymenium surface by the existence of a brownish, verruculose, granulate, matter that not dissolves in KOH, growing on old leaves of Cornus sanguinea.<br />The apothecia seems to be glabrous, and many leaves have hyaline or translucent gelatinous conidiomata perhaps belonging to his asexual morph.<br />The asci are IKI negative, with no croziers and the ascospores do not turn darker. I could see that some paraphyses have VBs that stain in cresyl blue. Excipulum made by prismatical to roundish cells. <br />Some idea will be wellcome <br />Thanks again

Dear all<br />I would very much appreciate any suggestion about this fungus growing on fallen dead leaves of Magnolia grandiflora at the sea level.<br />The conidiomata (acervular?) are 0.2-0.5 mm in diameter,  are opened by means of a lid as in some genera of Helotiales (Hysterostegiella), and they are surrounded by a crown of dark brown setae up to 300 microns long. The conidia seem to be holoblastic, hyaline and sickle-shaped.<br />Many thanks for help me again

Hi to all<br />This nice Otidea makes auricularioid apothecia briefly stipitate up to 60 mm high with some basal ribs that may be branched and anastomosed. The excipulum is citrine yellow and furfuraceous (under lens!) and the hymenium first greyish late ochraceous. <br />It grew on a oromediterranean environnement at 1100 m of altitude under Quercus pyrenaica and Quercus ilex at the north of Spain (province of León).<br /><br /><br />The paraphyses have no pigmented vacuoles and they are straight or curved. The cells of the textura  prismatica of the ectal excipulum have rich citrine yellow incrusting pigment but they have not amber drops in Melzer or IKI reagent.<br /><br /><br />I feel this fungus is close to O. concinna or O. phlebophora . What's your opinion?<br />Thanks again   <br /><br />

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>This fungus grew on a culture of fox dung with many rests of animal hairs, and forms small, gregarious, superficial, roundish, yellowish at first, later orange and finally brownish cleistothecioid, smooth, ascomata, growing under a very copious white hypal mat.</p> <p>The asci are small, roundish to ovoid, and the ascospores are smooth, yellowish, roundish or very broadly ellipsoid, 4.5-5.2 x 3.8-5.2 microns. Cleistothecial walls built by a yellowish textura angularis.</p> <p>I feel this fungus belongs to Onygenales and it could be near to Aphanoascus fulvescens, a  keratinophilic fungus, but J. Guarro suggest me another possibility: Xanthothecium peruvianum. So I'd like to know your opinion</p> <p>Many thanks in advance</p>

Only protruding the roundish papillate necks. The shortly stipitate asci have a conspicuous refractive apical hemiamyloid apparatus (deep blue after KOH-pret.) and hyaline apiospores.</p> <p>I feel this fungus might belong, or to be near to the genus Pseudomassaria, or into the Diaporthales?.</p> <p>Have you some idea for help me?</p> <p>Many thanks in advance</p> <p>The collection was made at the Botanical Garden of Gijón (north of Spain), at the sea level</p>

Hi to everibody<br /><br /><br />This fungus, collected on thin branches of Quercus robur, seems to be Calospora arausiaca (Fabre) Sacc. but do you know what's the actual status of this fungus?<br />In Whemeyer's Revision of Pseudovalsa....he says that could be only an inmature form of Pseudovalsa umbonata (actually Prosthecium pyriforme Jaklitsch &amp; Voglmayr). <br />Close to the fruitbodys I have found acervuli and brownish conidia of perhaps their anamorphic state. Do you know if this conidia belong to the sexual state that I have found?<br />Could this fungus be an inmature state of Pseudovalsa longipes? <br /><br /><br />Many thanks again

Their protruding necks are somewhat stout and they are up to 200 microns long. Hamathecial filaments hyaline, much branched and with anastomosis. Ascospores with conspicuous striate walls.

Hi to everybody <p>These small (0.3-0.4 mm) orange perithecia grew on incubated rabitt dung for one month. They seem to be ostiolate because there is a crown of hyaline setae around the very inconspicuous, not protruding, neck. Perithecial walls are more o less glabrous. Asci clavate. Ascospores citriform, biporate with smooth walls.</p> <p>According to GARCIA &amp; al. (STUDIES IN MYCOLOGY 50: 63–68. 2004) the genus Sphaerodes currently comprise species characterized by non-ostiolate ascomata (if they are ostiolate they have a short neck surrounded by a crown of hyaline setae) and reticulate ascospores, umbonate at both ends. So only rest Melanospora as a good choice for my fungus. But I don't know a keyed species that matches with this collection.</p> <p>Could you help me?</p> <p>Thanks in advance</p>

Bonjour tous<br /> <div>I think this is the taxon on <em>Vaccinium myrtillus</em> without croziers.</div> <div>Presumably the major problem is that there is no type material of Phillips' original collection on <em>Acer pseudoplatanus</em>? The <em>Vaccinium</em> host would appear to have some significance, and that whatever we call it is a different species from this collection on a <em>Quercus</em> leaf? <strong></strong>.</div> An interesting feature of this collection is that several of the asci showed distinct "<em>Psilachnum</em> bodies" as can be seen in two of these images.<br />Regards, Chris

Hi again<br /><br />What do you think about these small (up to 0.5 mm), gregarious, blackish, inmersed (suepidermial), glabrous, sessile and ostiolate (not compressed) pseudothecia that grew on indeterminate dicot. stems at 1600 m of altitude?.<br />The yellowish ascospores are persistently 5-septate, 6-celled, and the third cell are apically sligthly enlarged. <br /><br /><br />Many thanks in advance for your kindly help<br />Enrique

These blackish, effuse stromata have immersed perithecia up to 0.5 mm in diameter, visible as obtuse swellings on the wood, perhaps of Acer. The long asci have a discoid and amyloid apical apparatus and the spores, with smooth walls, are light-coloured for a long time and then gradually become olivaceous and finally dark brown, without gelatinous sheaths or germ slits.<br />I suppose it could belong to the genus Amphisphaeria, but I can't find any species well adapted to these characters.<br />Perhaps someone might have some idea that could help me.<br />Many thanks in advance.

Hi to everibody<br />This fungus makes small (up to 0.5 mm), erumpent, superficial, blackish and sub-glabrous, roundish pseudothecia on branches of Ribes petraeum at 1700 m of altitude. It has isolated or more commonly aggregated of many pseudothecia on the bark of branches lying on he ground.<br /><br />The asci are bitunicate and the ascospores are hyaline and 1-(3) septate, constricted at the septum and with a thick sheath. Pseudoparaphyses trabeculate are present.<br /><br /><br />Maybe a Massarina species?<br /><br />Thanks again

Hi to all<br />This fungus makes isolated, imersed, blackish perithecia up to 0.4 mm in diameter with very inconspicuous ostioles on small branches of an indeterminate deciduous tree (maybe Salix).<br />I think in a Cryptodiaporthe species and my guest is C. salicella, but my ascospores and asci are greater than the Wehmeyer's description. On the other hand this species seems to be very variably described in the literature.<br />What do you think?  <br /><br />Thanks again<br />Enrique
Enrique Rubio, 24-05-2020
Hi to everybody<br />These superficial globulose or barrel-shaped, luteous, minute up to 0.2 microns) pseudothecia sometimes with groups of periostiolar brownish, short septate setae, grew on decorticaed wood of Fagus sylvatica mixed with perhaps related ascomata of Chaetosphaeria ovoidea.<br />Its appearance and color is quite similar to that of Tubeufia cerea, but the existence of acute setae or protruding brown hyphae and smaller spores seem to differentiate of it.<br />Do you have any suggestions?

Hi to all <p>This fungus forms subcuticular pseudothecia (¿?) under the periderm of stems of Arundo donax. These pulvinate and ostiolate ascomata, arranged in longitudinal lines, are singly or situated on small stromata with some other ones, 0.4-1.5 mm long, up to 0.15 mm high.</p> <p>The 8-spored asci are cylindrical and I think they are bitunicate altough I can see maybe a small structure near the apex. The golden brown bi-cellular ascospores and the pseudoparaphyses are showed in the pics. I tough could be a Didymella or a close related genus, but I don't know a good genus for this collection.</p> <p>Have you some ides for it?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 14-04-2015
<p>Hi again</p> <p>I think this fungus found on old Juncus stems is an Anthostomella that forms uni (bi) peritheciate blackish, clypeate, stromata 0.3-0.5 mm broad with an encircled whitish ostiole. Asci long cylindrical. up to 140 x 7, with an wedge-shaped, euamyloid, apical apparatus. Ascospores unicellular, without dwarf hyaline cell, obliquely uniseriate, (16-)20(-23) x (5.2-)5.8(6.7); Q = 3.1-4.2, only light brown, with no gelt sheath and no germ-slit.</p> <p>I don't find a species that matches well with these characters</p> <p>Have you some idea?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hi to all <p>I need your help again with this pyrenomycete growing on still attached branches of Castanea sativa near the sea.

In fact I could not have observed  the existence of a quellkörper of another stromatic structures.</p> <p>Asci + or – long stipitate and polysporic. Maybe they have 64 hyaline, cylindrical, allantoid, multiguttulate ascospores, 9.6-12.8 x 2.8-3.3; Q = 3.26-4.62, that seem have a dextrinoid region near the middle.</p> <p>I don't know if this fungus could be a Cryptosphaerella (close to C. globosa), a Coronophora species or it belongs to another genus in Coronophorales.</p> <p>Have you some idea?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

<p>Hi to everybody</p> <p>This fungus was collected on small cutted branches, up to 10 mm broad, of Genista florida not lying on the ground, at the Natural Park of Somiedo (N of Spain), at 1500 m of altitude. It grew together with stromata of Thyronectria roseovirens.</p> <p>The fruitbodys are made of several subcuticular, blackish, perithecia more or less circinate, not forming a not well definite ascostroma, in valsoid configuration, with erumpent blackish ostioles.</p> <p>The cylindrical, shortly stipitate 8-spored asci have a conspicuous apical apparatus NOT STAINING BLUE in IKI and the ellipsoid, brownish, unicellular ascospores have a full lenght germ slit. Paraphyses are present.</p> <p>I think this fungus belongs to Xyalariaceae and maybe it could be into the genus Lopadostoma but the inamyloid asci don't fit well with this genus.</p> <p>Have you some idea for help me</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hello my friends<br /><br /><br />I present you a new problem with these small (up to 1 mm), white, stipitate, gelatinous, 'cyathiculoid' ascomata that grows on Fagus (Betula?) wood close to the river at 1500 m.<br /><br />The long, fusiform, not septate, multiguttulate ascospores are very peculiar at least for me.<br />The asci have an apical broad pore that I think is of Calycellina-type (?), reddish at low concentrations of IKI and very blue at higher. They seems to have not croziers and they are 8-spored. Paraphyses and marginal cells have conspicuous Vb's as the subhymenium too.<br /><br />Excipulum of textura porrecta.<br /><br />I think could be a Calycellina species but I'd like to know your opinion.<br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique

Bonsoir a tous mais mais en particuliere á Jacques Fournier, bienvenue des Antilles. <p>Ce estrome est né sur les crottes, je pense que de mouton en melange avec des autres de lapin, mais le teleomorphe est en conexion directe avec une grosse crotte que je pense n'est pas de lapin. Ces excrements ont etait en culture depuis quatre mois et ils ont formé beaucoup des rhizomorphes avant de faire l'estrome qui a 14 mm d'hauteur, perithéces rondes et papilées jusqu'a 0.5 mm.</p> <p>Les crottes etaient sur un papier humide non sur la sable ou la terre.</p> <p>Peut etre Podosordaria tulasnei?

Enrique Rubio, 08-02-2017
Hi again<br />I have found on fallen branches broken by the wind, these small (500-870 microns high, up to 100 microns broad), pyriform, subepidermial or inmersed on the wood, somewhat glabrous pseudothecia, solitary or arranged in fused groups, on Ulmus minor. The fungus seems to be xerophilous, because only the fall of the branches allowed me to see it.<br />The asci I think are not unitunicate, although that is not easy for me, with a variable numeber of ascospores (often 8). Pseudoparaphyses narrowly trabeculate. Ascospores yellowish, brownish, brownish-black, uniseptate (secondarily septate at maturity), heteromorphic, with clearly longitudinaly striate walls, sometimes sub-reticulate. Pseudothecial inner walls with hyaline prismatic or roundish cells.<br />I think could be near to Didymosphaeria, because the pseudothecia are not arranged in Valsoid-type as in the Valsariales.<br />Have you some idea for me?<br />Many thanks again
Enrique Rubio, 13-04-2012
Hi to all:<br />We have collected these small perithecia (or pseudothecia?) up to 0.5 mm in diam. inmersed under the bark of branches of indeterminate hardwood (Acer or Prunus, not Tilia). Ostioles are very nconspicuous. <p>The spores are very unequally 2-celled. Asci seem to have a very inconspicuous apical apparatus but I'm not sure.

These small, gregarious apothecia up to 0.5 mm in diameter grew on a branch of Fagus sylvatica fallen to the ground at 1300 m altitude. At the beginning they are whitish, but step by step they are invading of gray or amber gray color from the base.<br />The asci have croziers and the apical pore is IKI b . The margin is not overflowing and it is made by hyaline clavate cells with vacuolar bodys. The paraphyses contain vacuoles sometimes abundant, sometimes refractive, sometimes not, so the content is not clearly that of a Mollisia.<br />KOH negative or almost negative. I think it's a Mollisia, perhaps related to the amberina/ subamberina/sublivbidula group, but the asci IKI b seem to separate it from this complex.<br />What do you think?<br />

Hi again<br />These ascomata grew on corticated wood of Acacia melanoxylon lying on the ground in the NW of Spain. The colour of the hymenium varies from whitish to greyish and becomes amber in drier specimens. The excipulum is brown or orange-brown (pigmented textura angularis o globulosa-angularis) and the margins are not overflowing. Ascomata KOH negative.<br />Asci are IKI negative with croziers and form spores with high lipid content which only septate at maturity and always outside the asci. The paraphyses are filiform, barely dilated at the apex lacking refringent content, so I think Pyrenopeziza is the appropriate genus for this collection, a genus with very few lignicolous species, none of which are coincident. <p>Do you have any idea that could help me?<br />Many thanks again</p>

Dear friends: <p>I need your help for to know this Nemania species that grew on the underside of a piece of wood of Salix alba in a very wet place periodically covered by the water of a lake.</p> <p>The blackish multiperitheciate stromata are crust of 50 x 25 mm and 1 mm thick covered by a mass of olivaceous fresh discharged ascospores. Ostioles conspicually papillate. The perithecia are ellipsoid and 0.45-0.70 mm long. The tissue beneath the perithecial layer is whitish, soft,extending into the wood.</p> <p>The asci are long stipitate, 180-207 x 8 microns, pars sporifera 98-107. The apical apparatus is IKI and Mlz. deep blue. Fresh ascospores, 12-17 x 5-6, are brownish olivaceous and they have a short, inconpicuous germ slit probably situated on the more convex side.</p> <p>I think this fungus is close to Nemania aenea var. macrospora or the Nemania sp. leg.

Hi again<br />I have found small, rounded, gregarious, non-stromatic pseudothecia, semi-immersed in the bark of branches of Arbutus unedo still attached to the tree, revealing only a papillate ostiole which is usually broad and laterally compressed. The caudate ascospores are hyaline or light brown at maturity, smooth and they have many transverse and occasionally some vertical or oblique septa, they do not appear to be surrounded by gelatinous sheaths but seem to have inconspicuous conical polar appendages. The base of the asci is twisted and thinned towards the end.<br />Do you have any ideas that could help me?<br />Platystomum?

Hola a todos/as<br />Tengo estos Thecotheus sp, recolectados en los márgenes de un rio, en el suelo húmedo que deja n las aguas cuando bajan el caudal, en el sur de España.<br />Apotecios de hasta 3´5mm de diámetro, de turbinados a pulvinados, himenio al principio de color blanco brillante, después débilmente grisáceo por la maduración de las esporas, parte externa concolor con el himenio.<br />Los caracteres microscópicos quedan reflejados en las fotografías adjuntas.<br />Tiene cierto parecido con T. pallens, el hábitat terrícola sin presencia de excremento, la distribución de la esporas dentro de las ascas (biseriadas) y las paráfisis de dos tipos es similar en esta especie. El característico apículo esporal, en ocasiones con tres puntas y las esporas ampliamente elipsoidales en esporas maduras creo separan a T. pallens de esta especie.<br />No tengo ninguna otra idea...<br />Alguien conoce y puede ayudar??<br />Saludos<br />Curro Valencia

This was found in an area of woodland damaged by tree felling.<br />Pale orange, I thought it might have been a Scutellinia, about 5mm across with a stalk, mostly submerged, 8mm long.<br />The asci tips were blued with Lugol and the spores were 10.5 x 4.5µ.<br />Can anyone suggest a name or group?<br />Thanks<br />Mal<br />

Perithecia non stromatic, clypeate, inmersed under the bark of a tiny branch of a broad leaved tree. The ascospores are hyaline, 3-septate at maturity, with a broad gel sheath and the asci are long cylindrical with an refringent not amyloid, not congophilous apical apparatus.<br />Do you have some idea that help me?<br />Many thanks again

Hi to everybody<br /><br /><br />This Pyrenopeziza fills overwintered leaves of Veratrum album at 1700 m of altitude. The margin is built by short hyaline, clavate cells and the excipular cells are hyaline and only brownish at the point of attachment.<br /><br />Have you any idea?<br /><br />Thanks again

Hi to everybody<br />These minute, white, sessile, pruinose, hemisphaerical, neither applanate nor cupulate, 0.5-0.7 mm in diameter, grew among Ceratodon purpureus and algae on sandy burnt soil.<br />The thick-walled, strongly dextrinoid asci which may appear to be bitunicate, have an irregular apical dehiscence as in some Mniaeceia species (white arrow). No conspicuous paraphyses I have seen. Ascospores coarsely verrucose.<br />Some idea for it?<br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique<br />

Je vous prie, nouvellement, une opinion sur cet Psilachnum (?) que croit sur les pieds morts de Helleborus viridis a 1500 m. Il est minuscule, urceolée puis cupulée, marge blanc et fimbriée, sessile; blanc, puis jaune et finallement rouge. Les vapeurs de NH4OH le changent avec violence au rouge. Spores 6-10 x 1.7-2.4. Asques avec crochets, IKI bb. Poils septées (1-3), apex obtuse, hyalines. Ectal excipulum angularis. Le IKI provoque l'aparition d'un couleur bleuatre (amyloide) sur les poils et la base des memes. Ps. rubrotinctum Graddon, une spece que je ne connais pas des Filipendula et Cirsium, a les spores (selon la Literatture) plus petites. Avez vous une idée sur cet champignon? Merci beaucoup a tous par votre aide.

Dear friends of the forum<br /><br />I need your help with this fungus that forms inmersed perithecia flask-shaped up to 250 microns. These perithecia, solitary, in pairs or in 'valsoid' groups have short or long necks with ostioles scarcely protruding and very inconspicuous. I have seen any obvious stroma or stromatic disk. No black line. I had seen these perithecia only when I cut the branch, because I was not suspecting that they are here.<br />The perithecia are placed just below the periderm with short necks or at some mm and then its necks are longer.<br />The branches of Juglans regia are 20 mm in diam. and they are liying on the ground.<br />I don't know a good genus for my fungus. Maybe Cryptodiaporthe?  <br />Many thanks again for your help.<br />Enrique

Enrique Rubio, 01-01-2013
Hello again and happy new year for all<br /><br /><br />Together with the ascomata of Psilocistella/Psilachnum species on Tilia wood that turns reddish with ammonia vapour (see the macrophoto) they were another witish cupulate ascomata with big 8-spored  asci IKI (-) negative and croziers (+) positive. IKI  with KOH pret. is negative (-) too.<br /><br />The marginal hairs are very agglutinated and very difficult to segregate. Initially they seem to be smooth but the end cell is very finelly verrucose in KOH. For it, my impression is that this fungus could be a Cistella species that I don't know.<br />What do you think?<br /><br />Many thanks again

Can you help me again?<br />Many thanks<br /><br />Enrique
Enrique Rubio, 25-04-2019
Minute orange apothecia firmly anchored to the lichen thallus, that a friend of mine tells me can be a Nephroma. These apothecia are relatively hard, the asci react very deeply in IKI giving a very intense blue color, almost greenish and the excípulum seems to contain greenish cells perhaps coming from the algae. The asci appear be bitunicated and contain eight broadly fusiform spores, with yellowish walls. By the other hand. the apothecia have some hyaline septate thick-walled hairs which seems to me a rare character in this type of fungus.<br />In other words: I don't know if it's just simply the ascomata of the lichen or if it's a lichenicolous parasitic fungus.<br />I'd like to know your opinion<br />Thanks again<br />
Lothar Krieglsteiner, 01-12-2022
on 4.7.22, in the marginal area of National Park Skjaekerfjella, on a thin twig of Betula nana in marshy fjell-vegetation. The few apothecia first were fully unripe, and I took the with me in a moist plastic bag for weeks and still kept it at home before it became halfway ripe. Unfortunately, I missed to take spore measures, but fortunately have a measure in my pictures to estimate. <br />There is no material left now.<br />I think this could be Godronia urceolus. Can somebody confirm this or express another opinion?<br />Yours, Lothar

Enrique Rubio, 14-02-2019
Hello friends of the forum. I would like to know your opinion about these scattered perithecia growing on semirotten and very wet wood of Populus, who were neither half-submerged in water nor near a river. The (sub) superficial blackish ostiolate peritecia up to 300 microns in diameter, more or less carbonaceous, pyriform, papilate but no beaked, glabrous. Asci long cylindrical, 8-spored, with a long attenuated base, 165-200 x 10-11, with a thick refractive, Melzer negative, apical annulus. Paraphyses filiform. Ascospores hyaline, mostly with 5 eusepta.<br />No anamorph I have seen. In a way it seems to remind me of a species of the genus Chaetosphaeria (Ch. cupulifera), but the ring of the asci seems excessively large, as does its length.<br />Do you have some idea for this collection?<br />Thanks again
Enrique Rubio, 16-09-2019
This Otidea grew at 1000 m in a forest with Corylus avellana and Fagus sylvatica on calcareous soil. The pruinose young excipulum has persistent lilaceous hues.<br />Excipulum not reddish in Melzer's reactive, bright yellow in KOH (fresh material). Neither crystal-like aggregates among the hyphae of the medullary excipulum, nor striate exudates on these cells. This species is relatively common in Asturias (north of Spain) on calcareous soils of forest without conifers.<br />I think that the strongly yellow reaction in KOH of the fresh ectal excipulum, and the rest of the characters I have described separate it from O. caeruleopruinosa, O. bufonia and Otidea mirabilis.<br />What do you think?<br />

Hi to all:<br />I need some help for to identify these very small, gregarious, white to light ochraceous, turbinate ascomata up to 400 microns in diameter. The hymenium is + or - convex and pruinose. The marginal region is + or - smooth. They grow on corticated branches of Salix (?) still attached to the tree. <br />Basal excipulum of a texture angularis is olivaceous brown, not hyaline. Marginal hairs are very indiferenciate and colourless. <br />Maybe a Parorbiliopsis species? <br />Many thanks for your help<br />Enrique

Salut a tous,<br /><br />yesterday i found this little discomycete on leaves of Juniperus sabinae:<br />Apothezia: 0,3-0,8mm, fresh translucent to white, drying the hymenium becomes greyish to light brown, stalked up to to 0,5 mm, base is blackening (!).<br /><br />Asci 40-50 x 6-8, J+ (blue), Croziers +. Spores 8-9 x 4, Oil 0-1.<br />Excipulum ends in little hairs up to 8-12, 1-septated, a little curved and apical swollen. they seem to be very fine warted, not totally smooth.<br /><br />It reminds me at genus Cistella, but I'm not really convinced by this idea. Is there a species on Juniperus?<br /><br />Who can help?<br /><br />All best from Dirk

<p>Hi to everybody</p> <p>This Karstenia species was found on debris of Ammophila arenaria. This fungus seems to match with Karstenia idaei, a fungus that we found commonly on subalpine woody sustrates, but I have doubts with Karstenia macer a species that I don't know although it has a negative asci IKI reaction. </p> <p>Can you help me?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hi my friends<br />I'd like to know your opinion on this peculiar fungus.<br />Perithecia superficial, gregarious, growing on branches of Ficus carica still attached to the tree but close to the ground, but away from water, apparently not growing on pyrenomycetes or other fungi. Pyriform, 200-400 µm high, collapsing vertically when dry, blackish, ostiolate, densely hirsute due to subhyaline or light brown hairs with acute apex, multiseptate, (100-)165(-225) x (10-)11(-12) µm with thick walls 1.5-3.0 µm. Asci fusoid (72-)80(-102) x (14-)17(-20) µm, 8-spored, without an apical apparatus or subapical globule visible. Ascospores ellipsoidal (18.0-)20.0(-22.5) x (7.0-)7.5(-8.0) µm; Q = (2.3-)2.7(-3.0), with obtuse poles only slightly attenuate; hyaline, yellowish at maturity, constricted to a median transverse septum, ornamented by conspicuous warts up to 1 µm high surrounded by a thick, usually persistent episporium.<br />The fungos shares characters of Echinosphaeria and Helminthosphaeria. It seems close to Echinosphaeria incondita A.E. Bell &amp; Mahoney, CBS Biodiversity Series 15: 79 (2016) with aquatic ecology, with up to 3 septa more fusiform larger ascospores 25-31 x 6-8, not constricted and asci vith an apical apparatus.<br /><br />

Bonjour,<br />Un petit service à demander : connaissez-vous la répartition de Peziza vacini.<br />J'ai le texte de Röffler mais sa répartition date de 1968 et je pense qu'elle a évolué depuis.<br />Si vous l'avez trouvée ou si vous avez connaissance des pays où elle a été rencontrée, ça m'aiderait.<br />Merci à tous<br />Gilbert
Daniel Ghyselinck, 26-03-2021
Found on hardwood, plenty of these long necks arising from the bark.<br />Difficult to have a good photo of the ascus, there are probably very thin. The apical pore is slightly blue in IKI.<br />Spores small, variable in shape and size, 3,5 - 6 x 1 - 1,8 µm, often slightly bent, sometimes strongly, pale yellow brown under the microscope.<br />Looks like Togninia minima, but the ascus blue in IKI does not fit.<br /><br />Thanks and best regards,<br />Daniel

Hi to all <p>On medium size (40-70 mm in diam.) felled branches of Alnus glutinosa lying on the ground<br />I have found many inmersed, at first hyaline later greenish, perithecia that no<br />are into a clearly definited stroma. No ventral black lines. The necks are protruding across a well visible greyish disc.</p> <p>The asci have an apical refringent apparatus and they are abruptly contracted at their base<br />(Diaporthales). No paraphyses I have seen. The ascospores are hyaline, later greenish, 1-(0) septate, very polimorphic, with some aberrant forms. No appendages. The spores are surrounded by a gelatinous sheath.</p> <p>Dispersed between the perithecia they are many inmersed greenish conidiomata that could<br />be the anamorphic state of this fungus.</p> <p>What do you think?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Cher amis du Forum. J'ai trouvé ces petites fructifications (jusqu'à 1-1.5 mms x 2 mms d'altitude) sur des inflorescence de Juncus inflexus. Mes espérances de ce qu'il pût s'agir de Gloeotinia juncorum se sont évanouies et j'ignore son identité. Spores 10-13 x 4-5. Asques 90-110 x 8, avec crochets, IKI bb. Paraphyses avec LBs. Je n'ai pas observé d'esclerote, ni même à l'intérieur du support. Je pense de ce qu'il peut s'agir d'un Hymenoscyphus. Merci para votre aide. Dear friends of the Forum. I have found these small fructifications (up to 1-1.5 mm x 2 mm of height) on inflorescences of Juncus inflexus. My hopes that it could be a question of Gloeotinia juncorum have vanished and I do not know her identity. Spores 10-13 x 4-5. Asques 90-110 x 8, with croziers, IKI bb. Paraphyses with LBs. I have not observed any esclerotium, not at least(even) inside the support. I think is a Hymenoscyphus species. Tnahk you for your kindly help.

Bon soir a tous: Je vous prie une opinion sur cette Tricharina avec l'hymenium blanchatre-grisatre que croit sur sol boueux a 1700 m, entre les Veratrum et les Caltha palustris. Apotheces jusqu'a 5 mm. Spores 16-19 x 10-11, lisses, sans guttules et polar granules. Asques 165 long, avec crochets, IKI (-). Poils jusqu'a 200 micr. long. Les clés de Yang et Korf me portent á T. gilva ou T. ochroleuca, me je ne suis pas capable de me décider par une d'elles. Merci par votre aide

These apothecioid ascomata are gregarious, superficial but perhaps erumpent, and colonise the underside of overwintered Ligustrum ovalifolium leaves. They are very exiguous and measure 100-200 microns in diameter; sessile, initially very shortly cupulate, later flattened to become convex and pulvinate and possess abundant and conspicuous excipular hairs with several septa, the base of which arises from a pigmented vesicular cell and the ends with an hyaline and obtuse apex. Their walls are not smooth but slightly roughened, as if encrusted, but not truly warty like those of the genus Cistella. The excípulum has an angularis or prismatica texture with angular or more or less rectangular cells, with the walls provided with a yellowish-brown pigment.<br />The 8-spored asci are clavate, with a base without croziers and a probable apical pore with no reaction in IKI. The ascospores are hyaline and smooth, cylindrical, with a fine guttular content. I envisage two genera for this ascomycete: Cistella and Psilachnum, although I am more inclined to the latter as the hairs do not have distinctly warty walls.<br />What do yo think?
Enrique Rubio, 26-06-2012
Hi to everibody<br />Have you some idea for our collection of this Crocicreas species growing on Veratrum album old stems at 1800 m of altitude?<br />The hymenium is yellowish and the excipulum brownish or blackish. The asci are 8-spored, IKI negative, up to 65 x 9, and they have croziers.<br />Spores hyaline, fusoid, eguttulate, straight to curved or sigmoid.<br />I have seen any species (Zotto's CD, Carpenter's paper...) with these data.<br /><br />Thank you for your help<br />Enrique

Bonjour a tous. Je vous prie une oipnion sur cette Hetrosphaeria (?) que croit dans les pieds morts de Veratrum album a 1700 m. Hymenium gris souris-olivatre a ocracée (au se desecher). Asques avec crochets, 95-110 x 10-13, octosporiques, IKI rr. Spores (0)-1 cloison (deja dans les asques), 20-25 x 5.6-6. J'avais pensée à H. veratri, mais les dessins de H. O. Baral me découragent parce que les spores ont de moindres dimensions et semblent ne pas avoir septa. Il est possible que même je sois trompé et il ne s'agit pas du genre que je suggère. Merci en avant par votre aide

Following the thread of Lieve Deceuninck's message in this same forum about Mollisia pteridis Gillet, I have found several cupulate and sessile ascomata up to 0.5 mm in diameter, KOH negative, on blackened parts of Pteridium aquilinum rachis. The exccipulum is hairy and formed by a brownish textura angularis which on the flanks of the fruitbodys forms septate, long and pigmented hairs, while on the margin these are also long but hyaline.<br />The paraphyses have small vacuoles that stain in cresyl blue, but do not contain the large cylindrical and refractive VBs typical of the genus Mollisia.<br />This fungus that Ellis &amp; Ellis assimilate to Mollisia pteridis and that fits very well with the drawings they make of the lateral and marginal hairs, could also fits with Gillet's succinct description.<br />What do you think?

Hi forum.<br />These tiny, gregarious, gregarious, blackish, conical or pyriform ascomata up to 200 µm long, grew on Phragmites australis stems. The ascomata are glabrous, but the necks of the ascomata are fimbriated by long hyaline hairs but more shorter brownish hairs surround the ostiole. I see no paraphyses and the asci are very peculiar, cylindrical, rather long, sometimes more than 100 µm long, without reaction in Melzer's reagent, with numerous small, ellipsoidal, hyaline ascospores. I don't know their discharge mechanism and am therefore I'm very confused about the placement of this fungus, which I don't exclude that it could be lichenized since numerous green algae surround the ascomata.<br />Do you have any idea that could help me? <p> </p>

Bonjour,<br />Cet disco était sur un Digitalis purpurea mort. C'est Pyrenopeziza digitalina? Je ne le pense pas. Mais qu'est-ce que c'est?<br />We found this little disco on the flower stalks and dead flower remains of Foxglve, Digitalis purpurea. It was with Flagelloscypha (cyphelloid), and the Hymenomycetes Periconia byssoides and Dendryphion comosum. The only similar species of discomycete on Digitalis in the UK seems to be Pyrenopeziza digitalina. However, that species isn't described as having hairs, is reported to be found on dead stems, and looks darker. Pezizella discreta and Pyrenopeziza revincta have also been found on Digitalis, but I don't think I have one of those.<br />The ascocarps were sessile, fringed, and up to 0.3 mm diameter. Released spores were few but I estimated them to be about 7-10 x 1.5-2. Asci were biseriate, without croziers, and typically 40 x 5. The tips turned blue in Lugol. Some cells looked like hairs, and were minutely spiny.<br />Cordialement,<br />Steve

tiny, pale brown apothecia with ± distinct margin, non-hairy. At the margin of Eutuypella prunastri stromata attached to dead Prunus cerisifera branch 1 m above ground in  damp scrub. Paraphyses longer than asci, mainly non-circinate, with clavate apices, imbedded in gel.  Asci ca. 63 µm long, 8-spored, + croziers, I-. Spores hyaline, 1-celled, flattened ellipsoid, . Sporer ca 11.9 x 5.1 µm with slighly grainy contents but no guttules.<br /><br />See:<br /><br />

Hello again<br /><br />This spring we have found this strange fungus, perhaps close to the genus Ciboria, growing on old stromata of Rhytisma salicinum on decaying leaves lying on the ground of Salix sp. at 1600 m of altitude. At the same place thay are many stromata with  the ascomata of Rhytisma salicinum hanging on the branches of Salix.<br />This fungus was previously collected in another far place by our friend A. Román  and was showed in Ascofrance  <a href="../search_forum/7900"></a>.<br /><br /><br />The ascospores are 2-nucleate, with polar dextrinoid bodys and late they seem to make sphaeric microconidia. Asci with apical pore of the Sclerotinia-type, with croziers. Medullary excipulum of textura intricata. Ectal excipulum globulosa, not blueing in IKI.  The paraphyses have not conspicuous Vb's. <br /><br /><br />Have you any idea?<br />Thanks again

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>I need your help with these pinkish orange  erumpent ascomata up to 0.5 mm by a longitudinal rupture of the peridermis of the host. There are not lips or valves around them.</p> <p>The lateral ectal excipulum seems to be a prismatical/subangularis texture but it is very difficult to cut well. Asci with croziers, 8-spored, IKI red or dirty red blue in IKI (at high concentration), IKI b after KOH pret.</p> <p>The end cells of the paraphyses have a peculiar snake head-like morfology and they have big roundish but incolore Vb's.</p> <p>I think it belongs to the genus Laetinaevia but I don't see it in Hein's paper on this genus.</p> <p>The fungus wwas found  growing on indeterminate grasses at 1500 m of altitude</p> <p>Have you any idea?</p>
Enrique Rubio, 25-09-2013
Hi to all<br /><br /><br />These small orange/reddish perithecia  are situated under (in small clusters on the bark of Acer) or on the thallus of Frullania dilatata (it's very difficult to see). The perithecial necks have some rigid and hyaline 'hairs' and the spores become brownish with striate verrucose walls.<br />KOH violaceous/purple. <br />Please, Christian, don't make me cut it! I have only five fingers!<br /><br />Have you some idea for this fungus?<br />Thanks again
Enrique Rubio, 04-04-2017
Hi again<br />This Cyathicula species was growing on old stems of Urtica dioica at 900 m of altitude.<br />The ascomata are stipitate and fully whitish, with a fimbriate margin made by cylindric-clavate cells with many small refractive guttules as in the paraphyses. The ascospores have some small LBs at their poles and no septa. Asci IKI b, 52-68 x 5-7, without croziers. Ectal excipulum textura oblita covered by many crystals.<br />I think this collection deviates from typical Cyathicula cyathoidea, said to have croziers, so I'd like to know your opinion.<br />Many thanks again

Hi to all:<br />We have found this Calycina species on very wet eroded hardwood very close to the water level.<br />Apothecia, up to 1 mm in diam., are fully white, not reddening, stipitate and they have a convex hymenium.<br />No Chalara anamorph I have seen.<br /> <br />I think it's closely related (if not the same) with Calycina parilis.<br />What do you think?<br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique

Hi to all:<br /><br />We have collected these fully white ascomata, very shortly stipitate, with no conspicous blackened base, up to 2 mm in diam. on petioles and veins of old Prunus cerasus leaves at 800 m of altitude.<br />The spores are 1-nucleate. The paraphyses have some very little refractive Vb's, The asci HAVE NOT CROZIERS and the ectal excipulum have an angularis to very broadly prismatical textura.<br /><br />I think our finding is close to Hymenoscyphus immutabilis, but this species seems to be croziers at the base of the asci.<br /> <br />Can you help us?<br />Many thanks again

Hi again <p>These small (up to 250 microns high) gregarious, scattered, seminmersed, ostiolate perithecia grew on very wet, semirotten wood of Populus. Only the free, somewhat papillate, neck and the apical region of the pyriform ostiolate perithecia are blackish by the existence of agluttinated short hair-like black cells. The rest of the fruitbody is smooth and subhyaline.</p> <p>The cylindrical, 8-spored, shortly stipitate asci, 90-105 x 8-9 microns, have a highly refractive, small, IKI negative apical apparatus, the stipes not disolving at maturity.</p> <p>Ascospores hyaline, smooth, 3-septate, 13-20 x 4.5-5.5, with many guttules, with no gel seath, no appendages. Paraphyses septate, apically attenuated.</p> <p>Have you some idea for it?</p> <p>Many thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 16-05-2013
Dear friends <p>We have found these minute (up to 0.5 mm), very densely gregarious ascomata growing on<br />stromata of Eutypa sp. on Fagus wood. There were hundred of fruit bodys filling<br />the surface of the stromata that, on the other hand, were fertil. No anamorph.</p> <p>The ascomata, turbinate and attached by a narrow point,  are vinaceous brown and the hymenial surface (and the excipulum too) is very pruinose by the existence oh hooked granulate hair-like paraphyses. The excipular and marginal hairs are hyaline or subhyaline with hooked and granulate neck, whith any refringence at their walls and they arise from the<br />gelified and reddish brown cells of the excipulum.</p> <p>The asci are 8-spored, IKI negative, croziers positive. Some ascospores seem to make<br />ellipsoid microconidia.</p> <p>I don't know an Unguiculariopsis species with these characters. ZHUANG (1988) describes<br />U. parasitica and U. dimorpha as parasitic of pyrenomycetes, but their ascospores are different.</p> <p>Can you help me</p> <p>Thanks again</p>
Ethan Crenson, 29-08-2019
<div>Hello all,</div> <div>Recently I found this tiny discomycete on rotted hardwood in the Eastern US.  It is white, discoloring to amber/orange, cushion-shaped, perhaps with a pseudostipe or narrowing at the point of attachment.  Asci 120-150 x 12-14µm, IKI-.  Spores very guttulate, 5-8 septate, 32-50 x 4-5µm.  Paraphyses with irregular, swollen tips about 4-5µm wide at the widest point.  One thing I noticed is that the base of the excipulum stains blue-green in iodine.  This combination of features seems very similar to discussions of Strossmayeria basitricha I have read on this forum-- especially an exchange from April 2015 between Enrique Rubio and Zotto. Is this S. basitricha? Many thanks in advance.</div> <div>Ethan</div>

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>I have found these minute (up to 0.3-0.4 mm), gregarious, obconical, witish to amber downy ascomata growing on wood of cankers of Ulex europaeus at the sea level.</p> <p>The asci are IKI negative, 8-spored, with croziers. Paraphyses with small roundish colourless Vb's that stain in Crb. The hairs are long cylindrical, at least with 1 septum, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, straight at the margin but coiled at the flanks,</p> <p> </p> <p>I don't know a good genus for this collection. Can you help me again?</p>

<p>Hi again</p> <p>This fungus was found at the base of Carex sp. at 1700 m of altitude. Only six sessile apothecia, 0.4-20 mm in diam. over a well developped brownish subiculum. It has a mollisioid facies but the paraphyses have not refractive VBs and the asci are 4-8 spored. I think it is near to 'hemimollisia goldersbach! (Baral's Cubby) but the asci are shorter, the pore IKI rb, and it has less fusoid, shorter ascospores.</p> <p>By the other hand I feel this fungus could be close to Dennisiodiscus</p> <p>What do you think?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hi to everybody <p>Several times we have found this Iodophanus species (pulvinate ascomata up to 1 mm) on wet dead stems of gramineae (Ammophila, Elymus), Calystegia soldanella or Tortella flavovirens on calcareous sand dunes at the north of Spain. At the field we thought this was the common Iodophanus carneus but the ascospore morphology, the spore size and the much larger callose-pectic markings at the poles (up to 1 µm)  were very different of those of I. carneus.</p> <p>Iodophanus granulipolaris Kimbrough has a similar ornamentation buy it is a coprophilous species with larger ascospores 24-26 x 15-16 and longer spore markings too.</p> <p>Have you some idea for this fungus?</p> <p>My pics have a low quality because the ascomata have not a natural more yellowish colour. Really they are pinkish or salmon-orange, with the typical colors of most Iodophanus.</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Dear friends Do you know this Melastiza (?) species that grows on sandy soil under Pnus pinea in Zamora (NW of Spain) with a circum-mediterranean climate?
Enrique Rubio, 25-05-2015
<p>Hi again</p> <p>This Amicodisca species grew on wood, under the bark of a 10 cm thick branch of Quercus petraea lying on the ground at 950 m of altitude. The apothecia, 0.2-0.4 mm broad, have a greyish brown hymenium and very pale yellowish hairs with lumps of a resinous sustance. They are macroscopically not well preserved due to the dry weather but the microscopical characters are in good condition.</p> <p>I feeel this fungus is very close to Amicodisca svrcekii a fungus with wide apical pore faintly MLZ +, spores ellipsoid to suballantoid, aseptate, containing 2 polar lipid guttules, 8-11 x 1.8-2.5 as described by Raitviir and Huhtinen. Two Baral's drawings show ascospores 8.5-14 (-17.7) x 2.7-3.2(-3.5)  asci IKI 3bb and 8-10-11.5 x 2.6-2.9 asci IKI 3rb respectively and another one by Stip 10-14.5-3-4 asci IKI bb. In all these cases the ascospores show many small guttules and asci lacking croziers.</p> <p>But my collection have ascospores 6.1-9.1 x 2.1-2.9 with scanty guttules, asci not arising from croziers and in special way CONSISTENTLY IKI NEGATIVE EVEN AFTER KOH-PRET.</p> <p>For it I wonder if this character is sufficient as to consider this fungus as a different species</p> <p>Thanks in advance for your opinion</p> <p> </p>

Hello and greetings from Bosnia &amp; Herzegovina and Sarajevo, <br />this is my first post to ascofrance, but surely not the last.<br /><br />I`m curious about the Pezizales illustrated and shown bellow. I found three fruit bodies in the dry but still wet stream bank, accompanied by Trichophaea woolhopeia and Humaria hemisphaerica. Specimens were growing from the wet soil covered with the a little moss (not sure which species), and some kind of gametophyte, apothecia 0,3-0,5 cm in diammeter.<br />Other micro data are mentioned at the drawing.<br />Could be this some species of Leucoscypha, by the fusiformes shape of the ascospore it looks like possible solution for me, but I don` have proper literature, works and key for this genus...<br />Full mature spore dimesions: 24-25x8-8,5<br /><br />I would be very thankful if someone find solution (I still have one live fruit body in the box, for potential further neccessary analyses).<br /><br />Also I would appreciate if someone could mail me any litterature about this genus (besides L. semmi-immersa and L. patavina).<br /><br />Nedim Jukic

Hi todos...<br /><br />two years ago I compiled all the finds of Pseudotrichia viburnicola. Since then we have now 4 new collections:<br />it was Stip Helleman to find one during MellAsco 2011 in Le Bois de Sairé on Hedera helix:<br />next was Enrique Rubio who found it in Serín, Gijón, Asturias, Spain 13IV2012 on ?:<br /><br />then a find of Thierry Duchemin in Trouville, Normandy on Clematis connecting those geographically from southern England:<br /><br />And some days ago I found it in my mothers garden in Bonn, Germany where we enjoyed some Pentecôte holiday. It grew there on a dead twig (on the ground) of most probably Rosmarinus (some pictures attached, an updated map of distribution as well).<br />I wish all of you who will meet in Somiedo a fruitfull and friendly foray which I sadly cannot join.<br /><br />New Spanish records of Ps.v. are welcome... ;-)<br /><br />Best regards<br /><br />Martin<br /><br /><br />

Can anyone help with these gregarious, small (up to 0.3-0.4 mm) sessile, white to amber, slightly gelified apothecia growing on old stromata of Hypoxylon grex rubiginosum?

Asci IKI red with croziers. Paraphyses with some colourless Vb's.</p> <p>I think could be an Hyphodiscus species, maybe the Hyphodiscus 'cistella' of Baral's folders but perhaps it could be Nannfeldt's Cistella geelmuydenii.

Hi again<br /><br />These gregarious, small (up to 0.6 mm), shortly stipitate and fully white ascomata are firmly attached to the aerial parts of bryophita that grows on Pinus wood. The material was sent to me by M. Tapia from Navarra (NE Spain).<br />The asci are IKI negative and they have croziers (+). The ascospores are small and smooth. The paraphyses have some colorless VB's. Ectal excipulum with textura globulosa to prismatica with any gelified tissues. The margin has not differenciate hairs, only chains of cells with clavate and smooth end cells.<br /><br />We think perhaps this fungus is close to Pezizella muscicola Graddon, but the original diagnosis seems to be short and very incomplete....  <br /><br />What's your opinion <br /><br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique

Je vous prie une aide pour detterminer cette Mollisia que croit dans les tiges d'Erica arborea. Asci IKI bb, with croziers. Spores 40-51 x 3, multiseptées. Tout les ascomes sont KOH (-). Marginal protrudings subhyalines, brunatres, olivacées en KOH. Je pense a Mollisia ericae Rolland selon les clés de Andreas Gminder. Merci par votre aide.

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>These small (0.3-0.6 mm) gregarious, sessile, not really cupulate apothecia were found on Typha old leaves at 1350 m of altitude. The excipulum is brownish black and they have not conspicuous marginal elements. Any crystal we have seen in medulla or excipulum. The ascomata are KOH yellowish. Ascospores strongly clavate with well visible gel sheath around fresh discharged ascospores.</p> <p>It seems to be close to Mollisia hydrophila that I found regulary on Phragmites at the sea level, but this species are paler ascomata with many crystals.</p> <p>Have you any idea for help me?</p> <p> </p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Cher amis du Forum: Je vous propose une nouvelle question : Ces ascomata, turbinatées, extérieurement tomentoses, de 1mm d'altitude et 1 mm de largeur, croissent sur les feuilles mortes de Daphne laureola à 1700 m d'altitude. Asques IKI bb, jusqu'à 132 x 11, sans des crochets. Paraphyses avec beaucoup de VBs jaunes - verdâtres. Spores 10.5-16 x 5-8, pleines d'une multitude de guttules refringents. Excipulum médullaire intricata et ectal globulosa. Je pense a Rutstroemia sp. parce que sa base apparaît stromatisée et noirâtre et par ses caractères microscopiques. Avez vous quelque opinion?

Re-bonsoir. Voilà un très beau champignon trouvé dans une mouillère dans les PO à 1700m d'alt. sur une branche de bois (à proximité : aulnes, hêtres, bouleaux) indéterminé. Macro : Ascome haut jusqu'à 9mm ! cupuliforme à orbiculaire étalé. Hymenium de diamètre 6 mm max, crème grisâtre. Excipullum furfuracé. Excipullum et stipe (jusqu'à 6 mm de haut) crème-grisâtre un peu plus foncé que l'hymenium. Ne rougit pas à la blessure. Micro : Spores incurvées, 20-25x6-7 um remplies de guttules de 2 à 3 um de diamètre. Asques 70-90x10-12 um, IKI+ dans le Lugol. Spores unisériées. Boucles + Paraphyses larges de 4 um, septées, remplies de guttules non réfringentes. Avec les clés dont je dispose, je n'arrive à rien de convainquant. Pouvez-vous m'aider dans cette détermination ? Merci par avance. Yannick Mourgues

Hola a todos<br /><br />I found this small <em>Tarzetta</em> that seemed strange to me from the beginning, different from the <em>T. catinus</em> I have seen other times.<br /><br />The size is very small, the largest specimen is 13 mm in diameter, the ascocarp is sessile and the hymenium is more grayish than the excipulum.<br />Also the habitat is different from the one I usually find<em> T. catinus</em>, this time it is in muddy soil, next to a stream with <em>Quercus ilex</em>, the PH of the soil is acidic.<br /><br />I have been looking for possibilities and I have found a taxon that I did not know called <em>T. quercus-ilicis</em>. What is your opinion?. If there is any microscopic difference with <em>T. catinus</em> I could look it under a microscope<br />

Voici la description d'un petit Dermateaceae récolté lors des journées Ascos de Belcaire, sur tige morte d'Euphorbia, qui me semble proche de Diplonaevia mollisioides mais je n'ai pas de littérature sur cette espèce hormis une planche proposée par Zotto sur son DVD. Apothécies érompantes, à hyménium beige jaunâtre ; surface externe beige présentant à la marge des touffes d'hyphes ± dressées, noirâtres. Ø 0,1-0,2 mm Asques fusoïdes, avec crochet, contenant 8 spores bisériées, 41-52 × 4-5 µm, à anneau apical IKI+ (bb). Paraphyses droites, hyalines, cloisonnées, contenant des gutulles réfringentes. Spores fusiformes avec un sommet un peu plus large, hyalines, avec quelques fines guttules, non cloisonnées, 8-10 (11) × 1,5-2 µm. Excipulum de textura prismatica. Je joins mes dessins micros et une photo macro de qualité moyenne (pas facile à photographier ces petites bêtes...) Merci pour votre aide.

<p>Good afternoon</p> <p>Do you know what this "Pyreno" could be? In Acer leaves, surely A. monspeliensis. They are soft black dots, bulging when hydrated, tiny, which occupy the entire width of the leaf, as you can see in the photos. It doesn't look like a classic Pyreno, it probably isn't.</p> <p>The asci have a curious apical apparatus, very marked, but it is inamyloid. All asci I've seen have that irregular shape on the walls, I assume they're alive, although it looks like they're not. Spores are 2-celled, with 4 large LBs, 2 per cell, and hyaline conical appendages at the ends.</p> <p>Orienting myself for the spores I have gone to the genera Anisomeridium, Naetrocymbe, Lophiostoma, Vaginatispora, Lophitrema, Pseudocoleophonea and Wettsteinina, but I don't see anything like that.</p> <p>These are the measurements:</p> <p>Spores</p> <p>(15.5) 16.1 - 17.4 (18.3) × (4.1) 4.7 - 5.3 (5.6) µm</p> <p>Q = (3) 3.1 - 3.6 (4) ; No. = 38</p> <p>Me = 16.7 × 5 µm; Qe = 3.4</p> <p>Asci</p> <p>(60.1) 60.6 - 72 (83.9) × (10.8) 11.8 - 14.5 (15.6) µm</p> <p>Q = (4.2) 4.4 - 5.7 (6) ; No. = 42</p> <p>Me = 67.1 × 13.3 µm; Qe = 5.1</p> <p><br />Thank you so much.</p> <p>Miguel Á.

<p>Hi again</p> <p>What about this Sporomega/Colpoma growing on dead wood of Cistus ladanifer lying on the ground at the SW Spain?</p> <p>The ascospores are 1-septate with a gel seath and an apical globule. Paraphyses with conspicuous Vbs stained blue by Cresyl blue. No yellow KOH reaction or only greenish on the dark, marginal, elements. This collection agrees with Guy Garcia's GG 04040402 and GG 05041001 from 2004 and 2005 on Calluna and Castanaea wood. But my spores are only 1-septate (not 3-septate) and lacks de yellow KOH reaction (saids 'as some Mollisia species').</p> <p>Do you now some news on this fungus?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

Hi again<br />Minute semi-inmersed pseudothecia (up to 200 microns in diam) with only the obtuse papilla visble, on stems of Tamus communis (Dioscorea c.).<br />The golden light ascospores are (1-)3-septate, the second cell slightly enlarged, with obscure apical conical appendages. <br />It seems to match with the plate 0506 in last Bjorn Bwergen's book on Pyrenomyecetes, under the name Leptosphaeria scitula on Chelidonium. But the spore (and asci) size is larger than Holm and Shoemaker's descriptions.<br />What do you think?<br />Thanks again for help me.
Enrique Rubio, 25-07-2013
Dear friends<br /><br />Under a melanized thin, blackish, clypeoid pseudostroma they are these very small, roundish, glabrous, ostiolate perithecia up to 175 microns  in diameter. Single or in groups up to 18-20 confluent perithecia with ostioles that allways are not collectivelly erumpent. I have not seen a true stroma and the peritecia are not in valsoid configuration.<br /><br />The fungus grew on a corticated branch of Salix lying on the wet ground periodically covered by the fresh water of a lake, together with Lophiostoma appendiculatum. <br /><br />The asci are shortly stipitate, up to 90 x 7 (pars sporifera up to 70), 8-spored, with an apical apparatus deeply blue in IKI and Melzer. The brownish fresh ascospores have a conspicuous sigmoid and oblique germ slit; appendages or slimy sheath are absent.<br /><br />With the keys on Xylariaceous fungi I arrive to the genus Anthostomella but I don't know a good species that fits with my collection<br /><br /><br />What do you think?<br /><br />Thanks again

Hi to all<br /><br /><br />On very wet hardwood my friend M. Tapia was found this Pyrenopeziza with white to amber pallid sessile ascomata up to 1 mm in diameter, attached by a narrow point to the sustrate. They are discoid, aplanate, never deeply cupulate and their margins are not pilose. The excipulum has the same color than the hymenium.<br /><br /><br />Asci whit conical apices IKI b not of the Hymenoscyphus type, close to the Calycina type, 8-spored, with croziers. The ascospores are clavate with a low lipid content. Paraphyses without conspicuous refringent Vb's. The excipulum is made by an angularis-subglobulosa hyaline texture becoming prismatica in the flanks and towards the margin. Hyaline short clavate hairs make the apothecial margin. <br /><br /><br /><br />I think is not P. dilutella but I don't know a species that fits well with this collection.<br />Have you some idea<br />?<br /><br />Thanks again<br /><br /><br />

<p>Hi to the Orbilia lovers</p> <p>This nice species was found on the inner bark of Eucalyptus camaldulensis lying on the ground at the SW Spain, exactly at the place named Cuestas de Torreseca, Jarandilla de la Vera (Cáceres) Spain, 40º 03'48.59" N; 5º 35'22.22" O, 363 m. The sessile ascomata 0.4-0.9 mm in diameter have conspicuous glassy processes and the short 8-spored asci have the four lower spores reversed.</p> <p>I feel it is close to albidorosea buy I'd like to know your opinion</p> <p>Thanks in advance</p>
Castillo Joseba, 08-06-2016
Hay alguna tecnica o sistema para medir las esporas curvas?<br /><br />Yo uso Piximetre  y siempre tengo problemas y dudas  con las medidas de este tipo de esporas<br /><br /><br />Agradeceré cualquier sugerencia<br /><br /><br />Saludos<br />Joseba

Cher amis: J'aimerais connaître votre opinion sur ce Saccobolus qui croissait dans un crottin de cheval. Les asques mesurent jusqu'a 85 x 20. Les clusters (8 spores) 40-44 x 12-15 et les spores 15-16 x 6,5-7, avec un (sub) reticulate pattern. J'avais pensée dans S. eleutherosporus Brumm, mais je ne suis pas sure. Merci de votre aide.

Hi<br /><br />Pyrenomyceto found on branch dead of Quercus ilex, bright, subsumerged perithecia.<br />Found in a Holm oak forest at 100-150 m from the Cantabrian Sea, with clear saline influence.<br />Perhaps being somewhat immature, I have not observed germination pore.<br />It is the closest that I find in<br /><br />Thanks.<br />
Maren Kamke, 19-03-2014
Hi everybody,<br />I need your help again.<br />I continue to find this species on decidious wood and old, thick rubus stems. It is very small with a size of 0,2 mm, becoming superficial, gregarious. Spores hyaline without septa, but I'm not sure if they become 3-septate with age, (19-23) 21,33 x 4,25 (4-5) µm. Asci 85-101x6-8 µm, IKl negative, biseriat with croziers.<br />Thanks<br />Maren

Hello everyone, <p>on November 26, 2020 I found an asco growing at the base of presumably Carex arenaria. The site is located in the gray dunes in Koksijde, Belgium (coastal area).

Hi, <br />I would like help with determination.<br />Perithecia singly or small groups, distale zone absend, subepidermal, only ostiole prominent on surface, 620 um in diam., 300 um hight, ostiole 200-500 x 100 um, a long filiform, wall of ascocarp textura angularis, cells 15-20 x 10-14 um. Asci (37)40-43(48) x (7)7,6-9(9,5) um, ascospore biseriale, (12)13-15(16) x (2,8)3,1-4(4,6) um, Q=4,1, with polar apiculum 4-5 um long. I thought, that it is somewhere from the Diaporthales, but microscopic structures are diferent or somewhere with group Apiognomonia errabunda, Ophiognomonia rubi-idaei, Gnomoniopis chamaemori, comari or fructicola, but its microscopic structurs are by me different. Sub. dead stems of Rubus idaeus.

<p>Hi to all</p> <p>My friend F.J. Balda sent to me these gregarious, very small, turbinate, white to amber apothecia growing on the inner bark of Crataegus together with Orbilia xanthoguttulata.</p> <p>I don't know a good genus for this fungus that maybe reminds me the callorioid fungi. Asci IKI negative, with croziers. Paraphyses with clavate tips and without Vb's. Excipulum with + or - roundish hyaline cells. Marginal 'hairs' hyaline, clavate, smooth, with any content. </p> <p>Have you any idea?</p> <p>Many thanks again</p>

Hola.<br /><br />He encontrado estos Ascobolus que  no consigo identificar. ¿Alguien los conoce?<br />Gracias.<br /><br /> Apotecios marrones, hasta de 2 mm, creciendo sobre tierra rodeada de excrementos de conejo, en principio ovoides sin exponer el himenio, más tarde rompiéndose la parte superior para exponer el himenio, con las ascas maduras sobresaliendo por encima. Ascas de (471,61) 533,37 - 649,45 (671,83) x (17,15) 71,23 - 97,07 (105,34) µm; Me = 591,59 x 81,92 µm, de paredes amiloides, operculadas, con 4 a 8 esporas. Esporas esféricas, de 28,47 - 35,94 µm; Me = 32,59 µm, al principio hialinas, después pasando por diferentes tonos liláceos y posteriormente marrones, uniseriadas o irregularmente biseriadas, envueltas en una masa gelatinosa, (en cuanto a la ornamentación, es un poco complicado, porque esta es muy variada. En su mayoría se ven casi lisas, ligeramente punteadas o con pequeñas estrías, que a su vez pueden tener pequeñas o grandes grietas. Aunque con menos frecuencia también aparecen verrucosas, con diferentes formas de las verrugas). Paráfisis cilíndricas, septadas, cubiertas por una masa amarilla en su parte superior.<br /><br />Saludos.<br />Salvador.

Hello,<br /><br />wish you a merry christmas! <br /><br />In case someone drops by, I have this small Pyrenopeziza(?), on a piece of bark stuck 1m above ground between branches, on its inner side. The tree is Crataegus, I'm not sure about the piece of bark. <br />Asci seem inamyloid, mostly inflated with a narrow base. <br />Paraphyses cylindrical, VB-, not reacting in Baral's either. <br />Only short brownish clavate cells on the margin.<br />Soc. Orbilia xanthoguttulata. A row of trees between railroad and a field, riparian forest nearby.<br /><br />Am I in a correct genus? I've seen just a few lignicolous species in Bernard's key and neither was a good match. Maybe it froze a bit overnight, perhaps a damaged Mollisia would be a possibility too?<br />Thank you in advance.<br />Viktorie <br />

Enrique Rubio, 02-09-2012
Hi to everybody<br /><br />I'd like to know your opinion about these totally white ascomata, not yellowish nor reddening, small (up to 1.4 mm in diam.), gregarious, shortly stipitate by a stout and short stipe. The margin is glabrous an inrolled and the excipulum is white and pubescent.<br />The ascomata grow on Betula alba wet wood at 1600 m of altitude.<br /><br /><br />The asci seems to be IKI very faintly blue, 8-spored and they have croziers. Paraphyses have long cylindrical and refringent vacuoles. Ectal excipulum with textura angularis with many short polymorfic indiferenciate hairs. No basal blue reaction with IKI or Mlz.<br />I can't see a clearly textura oblita in the excipulum and because of it I cannot say that my fungus is close to Bisporella subpallida.<br />What do you think?<br />Many thanks again

Enrique Rubio, 18-07-2012
Hi to everibody<br />We have collected on previous years leaves of Rubus ulmifolius these strange orange to yellowish ascomata arising of veins and petioles. Apothecia are gregarious, very small, up to 200 microns, and they are barrel shaped, columniform, later substipitate, turbinate and subcupuliform.<br />No hairs or another piliform structures we have seen in the margin or the excipulum.<br /><br /><br />Ascospores are filiform and up to 3-septate at maturity. Asci IKI b, croziers unknow. The paraphyses have allways some refractive vacuoles at their apices. Excipulum maybe with textura porrecta.<br /><br />We don't know what genus agrees with our collection. Can you help us?<br />Many thanks again<br />Enrique

Hello all,<br />A couple of colleagues collected a whitish disco from living thalli of the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha (subsp. ruderalis). I think this is Pezoloma marchantiae.<br />Ascospores lacking guttules with dark spots near the ends (nuclei?). In water, n=20, averaging 8.65 x 4.3. Asci 8-spored, in IKI tips with a faint reddish band.<br /> <p>I have put some photos in the comments below.

Hi,<br /><br />May be somebody more experienced can help me. Is it possible that these pictures show Kretzschmaria deusta in a not yet mature (black) state? I know only bright whitish-gray anamorph form and completely black stoma. I've never seen something in between. Some pictures of stromatal surface like in<br /><br />;qryIDString=k004&amp;qryPart=t<br /><br />may give some hope? Unfortunately I have no pictures of section of stroma or microscopy.<br />Found on large Fagus sylvatica trunk (cut surface, not on bark)<br /><br />Thanks for your response.<br />Amadej

Lothar Krieglsteiner, 06-03-2023
I found only this one perhaps premature, but full ripe stroma. It is small, only about 1,3/0,8 cm in the dried specimen.<br /><br />24.02.2023, Portugal, Algarve, near Monchique<br />seemingly on the ground, but possibly connected with wood (most likely Quercus suber), in the margin of a small animal hole in a small canyon to a rivulet), in Quercus suber-forest (with Arbutus u.a.)<br /><br />With the key of Jacques Fournier I end at Xylaria longipes, with a fitting spore size. But: there is no Acer in wide surrounding, and the specimen looks very different from everything I by now saw as X. longipes. The germ slit of the spores is straight in my specimen (siee last foto). <br /><br />Who can help further?<br />Yours, Lothar<br /><br />P.S. We found also X. violaceorosea on Castanea, and X. cf. putaminum on Olea stones (form with small spores fitting X. oxyacanthae) - and a lot of X. sicula

Hello<br />This gnomoniaceae grows abundantly on leaves of Quercus.<br />Size: 350 - 400 x 280-350um. Neck 900-1300 x 45-50.<br />Asci: 30-33 x 9-13um.

With small appendages (2-3um) at the ends.<br />Initially I thought it was Ophiognomonia setacea, but lacks the central septum. It looks like gnomnia incrassata, but the neck is long and slightly smaller spores, and the host is Quercus. <br />Do not know whose it is?<br />Can anyone identify the species?<br />Thanks in advance <p>Susana (Spain)?</p>

Hello, this morning I went to pick some Psilachnum cassandrae. While picking and looking for more of them I found a beautiful white thing on one of the Chamaedaphne leaves. After picking enough I looked, if something interesting would turn out on Andromeda leaves and found a little more of this :) They are about 0,1 to 0,3 mm wide.
Thorben Hülsewig, 30-09-2020
Hi there, <p>i found this asco on 25.09.2020 on a Fagus cupules.<br />At first I thought of an ombrophila, but in the meantime I am not so sure anymore. Interesting is that this species seems to have hairs on the underside of the apothecium.<br />Also the reaction of the asci on Lugol is weakly blue.<br />Any idea what it could be ?</p> <p>best regards,<br />Thorben</p>
Adam Polhorský, 04-05-2016
Hello everyone, <br /><br />microscopy corresponds well with U. tityri, but the host is atypical(?). Could there be another possibility?<br /><br /><strong>Asci:</strong> MLZ-, crozier+, bi to uni-seriate<br /><strong>Spores:</strong> 5-7 x 3,5-4 , with few guttules<br /><strong>Paraphyses: </strong>perhaps 2 types?? majority protruding, coiled or straight, narrowing to the apex<br />                     others are immersed between asci with rounded apex<br /><strong>Hairs: </strong>i dont think i observed hairs, could not find them at the margin.<br /><br />Thank you,<br />Adam<br />
Enrique Rubio, 19-01-2022
Hi Forum<br />The ascomata of this fungus grew on corticated wood of Ulex europaeus, making cleistothecia (apparently non-ostiolate), blackish-brown, up to 0.5 mm in diameter, erumpent, isolated or coalescent and more or less spherical. The evanescent asci are claviform, pedicellate and contain (2-3-)4 dark brown spores with an apical pore, probably also monosporic since some excessively large spores may be seen. <br />At the end, the contents of the ascomata are powdery and consisting of a large cluster of spores and the asci disappear.<br />I wonder if this fungus could be well accommodated in the monospecific genus Boothiella, although it is different from Boothiella tetraspora, with larger cylindrical asci and larger and different spores.<br />Many thanks in advance for your opinions.<br />
Matthias Mann, 24-01-2017
Dear Forum!<br />First tiny white dots on Quercus-wood aroused my attention and then I saw the red colored wood. Under binocle I found following Pyreno. Could the white spots be it's anamorph? -all speculation.<br />
Enrique Rubio, 26-07-2016
<p>These very small (100-300 µm), erumpent, greenish, somewhat pulvinate apothecia were found, by chance, under the bino, between ascomata of Pezicula myrtillina and Gibbera sp, on thiny terminal branches of Vaccinium myrtillus at 1700 m of altitude.</p> <p>The apothecia are fringed by a crown of sparse hyaline subacute hairs, with somewhat partially glassy solid walls,  IKI negative, that don't dissolve in KOH.</p> <p>The 8-spored asci are IKI negative, arising from croziers. Paraphyses without VBs. Ectal excipulum globulosa to prismatica with strongly pigmented greenish walls. The peculiar ascospores 1(-2) septate.</p> <p>I feel this fungus could be into the Naevioideae, perhaps close to Chaetonaevia.</p> <p>Have you some idea for help me?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>

This Mollisia species grews at the very humid  basal parts of grasses (maybe Molinia caerulea) in peat bog soil at 800 m of altitude.<br />The ascomata, up to 1 mm, grew on a + or- developed brownish subiculum and the hymenium is yellowish or amber. KOH is clearly yellowish (+) but not strongly yellow. Ascospores are eguttulate. Asci IKI b, up to 75 x 8, 8-spored, with croziers. Paraphyses have cylindrical Vb's or fragmenting refractive Vb's,<br />Medullary excipulum with hyaline or subhyaline textura intricata. Ectal excipulum with vesiculose or angular hyaline or palid yellowish cells. Marginal cells are clavate, hyaline and slightly gelified.<br /><br /><br />I think in Mollisia citrinopigmentosa but 'my spores' are bigger<br />What do you think?
Bonsoir, Suite à plusieurs demandes, je viens de mettre au point, en toute modestie, une petie clé pratique des espèces rencontrées sur notre territoire. Je n'ai que peu de mérite puique je l'ai "extraite" de la clé mondiale du genre de Rappaz. Que nos voisins se rassurent, ils ont à peu près les mêmes espèces. Mais il en existe d'autres (je pense à Eutypella caricae qui sort sur Ficus dans le sud de l'Europe = bassin méditerranéen, que j'ai hésité à insérer par exemple). Je vous demanderai de la relire et de me signaler toute erreur de la virgule jusqu'à des erreurs plus fondamentales, et de la tester. Ce n'est que lorsqu'elle aura été éprouvée, corrigée, critiquée et validée que j'oserai demander de la joindre dans la rubrique documentation. En attendant de futurs échanges, je vous souhaite une bonne soirée. Alain

Estimados,<br /><br />Me podrían dar un consejo o cual es su metodología para la observación de esporas de Scutellinia. He tenido problemas con muchas colecciones donde me ha sido dificil observar la ornamentanción esporal, probablemente por inmadurez de las esporas.<br /><br />Tambien hay muchas colecciones donde el azul de algodón funciona de inmediato, sin problemas, pero hay casos en que practicamente me ha sido imposible ver algo de ornamentación.<br /><br />Si me pueden dar consejos o contar sus metodologías se los agradecería mucho,<br /><br />Saludos

<p>Hi again</p> <p>I need your help with this fungus with superficial ascomata growing on previous years leaves of Vaccinium myrtillus at 1400 m of altitude. Withish, turbinate, minute, up to 0.20 mm in diam. and 0.15 high, with an attenuate brownish base. Hymenium white, margin shortly pubescent, never with long hairs.</p> <p>Asci clavate 48-65 x 6.0-7.5 µm, IKI bb Calycina-type, 8-spored, with croziers. Paraphyses with Vbs that stain in Crb. Ascospores hyaline, smooth walled, narrowly fusiform but slightly scutuloid, with some small guttules at the poles, 13.5-15.8 x 2.2-3.1; Q = 4.35-6.63. Excipulum built by a textura prismatica with their walls very gelatinized. Marginal cells short conical with abundant gelatinous matter over their walls and Vbs that stain in Crb. Any long hairs I have seen.</p> <p> </p> <p>Any idea?</p> <p>Thanks again</p> <p> </p>
Enrique Rubio, 16-03-2017
Hi to everybody<br />I'd like to know your opinion on these scattered, small (0.2-0.5 mm), subturbinate, very shortly stipitate, semitranslucent, not gelatinous, glabrous apothecia, growing on sandy, old burned soil, among the moss Ceratodon purpureus, together with apothecia of Octospora rustica..<br />The hymenium and the excipulum are covered by a thin gelatinous, colorless layer making an epithecium. Asci 8-spored, IKI negative, with open, big, croziers as in many Orbilia species. Paraphyses with a small, roudish vacuole that does not stain in Crb. SCBs seem to be also present. Excipulum of hyaline, pyriform to roundish cells elongated towards the margo. Perhaps the free ascospores make narrowly ellipsoid microconidia.<br />I don't know what genus could be good for this fungus. Maybe it belongs to the Epiglia-Mniaecia complex?<br />Thanks again for your help

Salut, ces Pezizas, je les ai reprises sur des excréments bovins. Un aliment pourrait se fréquenter(se soigner) de la Peziza fimeti, tant par la grandeur esporal, comme par les caractères macroscopiques (aucune ne dépassait les 2 cm), en révisant une bibliographie je ne trouve pas la différenciation claire avec la Peziza vesiculosa. J'attends vos opinions. Merci beaucoup. Un salut. Alberto Román Hello these Pezizas, I gathered them on bovine excrements. Fodder might treat about the Peziza fimeti, so much for the size esporal, since for the macrocospic characters (none was exceeding 2 cm), checking bibliography I do not find the differentiation clear with the Peziza vesiculosa. I wait for your opinions. Thank you very much. A greeting. Alberto Román.

Bonjour,<br /><br />Je nécessite votre aide pour cet asco que je n'arrive même pas à rattacher à un genre.<br /><br />Récolte le 25/05/2021 – Lardy (91) – France – Etude sur matériel frais vivant.<br /><br />Sur une brindille (diamètre 1mm) d'essence inconnue entre une pelouse sablonneuse calcaire et un bosquet (j'ai vu des Corylus). Agrocybe pediades et Tulostoma sp à proximité.<br /><br />Apothécies d'1mm de haut, stipitées, en coupes ouvertes (la marge enroulée vers l'intérieur sur la photo est due à la chaleur de la lampe de la binoculaire). Les ascomes sont distants de 15mm les uns des autres sur la brindille. L'hyménium est beige/jaune pâle, la face externe blanche semble veinée, difficile d'évaluer le relief avec mon matériel. Je n'ai pas vu de poils sous la bino (excusez la qualité des photos...)<br /><br />-spores cylindriques à contenu lipidique variable, le plus souvent 3-septées mais aussi 4-septées. Elles semblent posséder une sorte de périspore incolore/transparent assez épais ; 15 mesures dans l'eau sans compter ce périspore = [20-30]x[4-5]µm.<br /><br />-asques octosporées IKI+ et paraphyses moniliformes renfermant de nombreuses petites guttules.<br /><br />Difficile de faire une coupe propre et nette, je peux réessayer si nécessaire.<br /><br />Merci d'avance pour votre aide,<br /><br />Pierre-Yves

J'amairais conaitre votre opinion sur cet petit ascomycete (ascomata: 0.2-0.5 microns), sessile ou subsessile, avec l'hymenium amber-verdatre- brun, frangée de poils hyalines ou legerement brunatres dans la maturesse, avec les extremites epineuses (type Cistella?). L'excipulum est gelifiée, avec textura porrecta et les asques (jusqu'a 60 x 7) ont des crochets, 8-spored et IKI rougeatre ou bleu-rougeatre. Spores 5.7-8.3 x 2.8-3.4. Il croit de maniere gregaire sur le bois de Tilia mort. Merci de votre aide I'd like to know your opinion about this small asco (ascomata: 0.2-0.5 micr.) that grows on Tilia sp. wood. Sessile or subsessile. Hymenium umber-greenish-brownish. Excipulum with gelified textura porrecta. Asci up to 60 x 7, 8 spored, with croziers, IKI r or rb. The distal element of the hairs are spiny (Cistella-like?) . Spores 5.7-8.3 x 2.8-3.4. Many thanks for your help.
Zetti Mario, 06-11-2023
I am not sure how much you can help me with these images found on a dead tree presumably Quercus sp. The fungus manifests itself as widespread black stromata forming large irregular patches often in longitudinal patterns. The surface is minutely bumped by almost-microscope pycnidia. <br /><br />I have not collected a specimen, but I can if revisit and collect, nonetheless  the cross section of the stroma reveals some data that might be helpful<br /><br />So to conclude I assume this is  a  Biscogniauxia sp. and wonder if from the photos we can determine the species - maybe Biscogniauxia mediterranea  ?<br /><br />Tnx<br />

Voici de nouveau une récolte effectuée à Belcaire lors des journées ascos, sur tige morte de chardon (peut-être un Cirsium), et qui me pose problème malgré des caractères assez remarquables. Apothécies discoïdes, à hyménium gris sombre, surface externe noirâtre avec un liseré gris pâle au niveau de la marge. Ø 0,5-1 mm Asques fusoïdes, octosporés, avec crochet, 48-63 × 6-7 µm, à anneau apical IKI + (bb). Paraphyses lancéolées à spatuliformes, pluriguttulées mais sans réfringence, non cloisonnées, 57-62 × 4-5 µm. Spores fusiformes, hyalines, contenant quelques guttules, non cloisonnées, (14) 16-19 × 2,7-3,2 µm. Excipulum de textura globulosa/angularis à cellules noirâtres, se décolorant vers la marge et devenant plus allongées (cf. photo). En suivant la clé de Bernard Declercq du genre Pyrenopeziza, on s'approche de P. carduorum mais cela ne colle pas pour les paraphyses et les spores de cette espèce sont un peu plus guttulées me semble-t-il. En suivant la clé des Dermateoideae de Nauta & Spooner (1999), on arriverait, selon moi, sur le genre Mollisiopsis. Mollisiopsis lanceolata (= Pyrenopeziza l.) présente bien des paraphyses lancéolées mais pas aussi fortement que celles-ci et ses spores sont plus petites... Donc j'arrive à des impasses. Merci pour vos suggestions.

After some time I tried an Orbilia again.... I found it today on a piece of rotten soaked wood, lying in a small creek, half submerged. The few (4-5) apothecia are very fragile and light apricot in colour. Asci are 8 spored, uni- to biseriate, IKI- and with a furcate base. (28-34.5 x 3.2-39 µm, without base) Paraphyses are covered at the tip with a gelatinous mass, shape is capitate and there are septa in the stipe. The spores are ovoid to fusiform featuring a prominent refractive body. (3.2-4.2 x 1.3-2 µm) I believe that I have found O. coccinella two times before. Is it the third time? Regards, Martin

Hi to all <p>Few days ago I have found these small fruitbodys growing on old wet stems of Rubus grex fruticosus at the sea level. Here is my description of this fungus.</p> <p>Apothecia superficial, gregarious, scattered among the blackish brown setae of the conidiophores of a dematiaceous mould (Pseudospiropes?), narrowly turbinate, more or less gelified, whitish to amber color, up to 0.30 x 0.25 mm, substipitate on a short and stout pseudostipe 0.12 high and 0.15 broad. Hymenium flattened, smooth or only slightly pruinose. Margin involute, glabrous, that exceeds the hymenium level. Excipulum glabrous and whitish.</p> <p>Asci narrowly clavate, inoperculate, unitunicate, 137-182 x 19-20 µm, 8-spored, IKI negative, arising from croziers. Ascospores biseriate, hyaline, smooth, with many small LBs, very polymorphic, ellipsoidal, cylindrical, subfusoid, obovoid, clavate, (19-)30(-38) x (5.2-)6.9(-9.8) µm; Q = (1.9-)4.6(-6.9), with 3(-5-6) cross septa only well visible in Melzer's reactive or congo red. A more or less smooth and complete gel sheath surrounds the fresh ejected ascospores. Paraphyses filiform, septate, not enlarged at their tips or only up to 2-2.5 µm, with cylindrical Vbs. Ectal excipulum textura oblita with cylindrical, elongate, septate, hyaline cells 2-2.5 µm, with a thin gel layer between them, wider at the apothecial base. Medullary excipulum is indistinguishable</p> <p>The basal region of the ascomata stained blue in IKI. All the apothecial tissues extrude in fresh condition a bright yellow fluid in KOH 10%.</p> <p>After reading Iturriaga &amp; Korf's paper I don't know a species that fits well with this fungus.</p> <p>Could you help me?</p> <p>Thanks again</p>
Enrique Rubio, 01-07-2007
Bon soir mes amis du Forum: Je vous prie une idée avec cette Peziza: Ascomata cupulées, sessiles ou subestipitées, jjusqu'à 2,5 cm de diamètre, avec l'hymenium de couleur jaunâtre olivacée, mélangée avec du brun, qui envahit progressivement la totalité de celui-ci. Excipulum plus claire, légèrement furfuracée de brun près de la marge, qui est denticulée dans les très jeunes exemplaires. Chair jusqu'à 1,5 mm d'épaisseur, avec des tons olivacés dans des exemplaires frais et jeunes, et qui ne semble pas émettre latex après être exposé à l'air. Spores largement elispoidales, avec un contenu jaunâtre et homogène, sans guttules, avec des murs un peu grossis et optiquement lisses (bleu cotton). Après être expulsé des asques elles présentent fréquemment les restes d'une enveloppe gélatineuse et hialine (perisporium) qui se détache seulement partiellement, en manière d'apéncice globuleuse collé à l'un de ses parois, de (19-20-21-(22) x (11-12-(13.5) m; Q = 1.6-(1.7). Adques cylindriques, pourvus de crochets, 275-337 x (12-17-(20) m. Des extrémités intensément bleutés dans IKI. Paraphyses multiseptées, cylindriques, sans des segments moniliformes, l'apical brusquement dilaté jusqu'a x 10 m. Elles ne semblent pas contenir un pigment intracelular. Le pigment, de couleur brune - rougeâtre ou brune - olivacée, semble être fixé dans les dites extrémités, en manière d'une incrustation extrapariétale. Excipulum médullaire avec un mélange d'hyphes vesiculeuses (textura globulosa) et d'hyphes plus ou moins cylindriques, larges et plus ou moins entrelacées (une textura intricata). Excipulum ectal avec une claire textura globulosa, d'hyphes vesiculeuses jusqu'à 62-70 m d'un diamètre avec pigmentación jaune - olivacée. J'ai pensée a Peziza granulosa var. boudieri Cooke (= P. boudieri (Cooke) Donadini, mais j'ignore si je suis erroné. J'aimerais connaître votre opinion. Merci en avant

Hola a todos, siempre me surgen dudas de que sería más apropiado decir. Veo trabajos donde aparece en la descripción de las ascas, diciendo "ascas biseriadas", pero en otros trabajos aparece en la descripción de las ascosporas, diciendo "ascosporas biseriadas" <p>¿Qué sería más apropiado? ¿Es una propiedad de las ascas, o de las ascosporas?<br /><br />Gracias.<br /><br />Salvador. </p>
Salvador Tello, 22-06-2014
Hola a todos.<br /><br />Quería que me confirmasen si estoy en lo cierto con la identificación de este hongo. Gracias.<br /><br />Ascomas de (363,98) 376,87 - 534,18 (565,52) µm, generalmente gregarios, negros, con la superficie rugosa, algo cuarteada y con algunas espinas muy pequeñas, creciendo sobre la corteza de una rama muerta de Quercus ilex. Ascas de 97,35 - 131,67 x 17,92 - 20,53 µm, unitunicadas, multispóricas, no amiloides. Ascosporas de (10,34) 11,05 - 13,68 (14,32) x (2,00) 2,30 - 2,65 (2,85) µm; Me = 12,23 x 2,47 µm ; Qe = 4,97, lisas, hialinas, cilíndricas, alantoides, con algunas pequeñas gútulas de aceite generalmente en los extremos y en algunos casos con un septo transversal.<br /><br />Yo pienso que es Nitschkia broomeana. Tengo entendido que lo normal es que tenga más espinas y que las medidas de las esporas sean algo mas bajas, pero supongo que esto entrará en la variavilidad de esta especie ¿estoy en lo cierto?. Gracias.

Yesterday I found some Pulvinulas growing on clay-rich soil near a pond. <p>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.</p> <p>I measured 15 spores from a spore print in water and the diameter was 14-15 microns.</p> <p>There are many fresh expert approved sightings of P. miltina in the Danish 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.</p> <p>So has there been some new study that has cleared this matter or is there still confusion about this species?</p>

Hi! Here&acute;s a Acomycete from Madrid(Spain) between moss. 23-I-2011 I&acute;ve thought about a species of Lamprospora but I cannot find something like.. They are red disc around 0.2 cm. at the centre red and in the margin pale orange. The microscopic caracteristics: Spores globose uniguttulate, with reticulum formed by ridges wich are >1µm high and 0.8 wide. 15.2 [16.6 ; 17.6] 19.1 x 13.3 [14.2 ; 14.8] 15.6 µm Q = 1.1 [1.2] 1.3 ; N = 15 ; C = 95% Me = 17.1 x 14.5 µm ; Qe = 1.2 Ascus around 180µm, paraphyses as the ascus and subcapitate 4-5 µm. Also the are few hairs of 150µm. Thank you very much!

Pour faire des photos des gros plain: > 2 x les certaines digitales reflex avec un CMOS o CCD < 24 x 36 ont une aumentation extra: x 1, 5 (Nikon D 70) ou x 1,6 (Canon EOS 20 D) et une profondeur deu camp aussi extra. Avec le souflage d'aumentation et un 28 mm ou 24 mm je peut actualement reusir une aumentagtion du 12 x. La ilumination pas une probleme, des petits lampes et un flash anuler c'est sufit, avant, avec le boitier argentique seulement etait possible d'employer lumiere flash, anuler et un autre. Une example hier: Lasiobolus

Bonjour,<br /><br />Je rencontre le terme "croziers" dans la littérature et sur les sujets de forums Asco.<br />Qu'est ce que c'est exactement ? je sais que ça se trouve au pied des asques mais je n'en connais pas la définition et je n'en ai jamais vu.   <br /><br />Je ne trouve pas ce terme dans les différents glossaires de mycologie, sauf celle-ci dans wikipedia :  <a href=""></a>)<br /><br />Quelqu'un peut-il montrer une image de ce qu'il faut voir à la micro ?  <br /><br />Merci de combler mon ignorance.<br />Michel

Hi together I wish to show some results about the very interesting Orbilia collection made by Enrique, from Eucalyptus bark in Asturia. I identified this species as O. alba, but later found that while this Orbilia became senescent, another Orbilia developed with similar though wider spores with a larger, globose, central apical SB, which I identify as O. cotonoeastris (a close relative to O. rectispora and O. pellucida which JP Priou knows). Now, I believe that to O. alba belong the adhesive knobs which trap arthropods, and also the Drechslerella anamorph with very thick 2-septate conidia and constricting rings. On the contraty, O. cotoneastris is a member of series Dactylella and has cylindrical multiseptate conidia and no trap organs are known. The problems here are manyfold: The apothecia of O. alba are now decayed and no pure culture possible. We tried to cultivate the trap organs, but the result is still unsure. So, if this Orbilia shows up again I would be very glad to receive a further sample. While the apothecia are gone, the adhesive knobs become more and more, and I added small spiders and mites. Actually, within a few seconds the legs stick to the knobs. Often the animals succeed to get free after keeping unmoved for some minutes to let me take pictures, but one small mite was captured yesterday and is now beginning to get overgrown by the hyphae. The hyphae of the knobs with their Woronin bodies resemble well the anchoring hyphae of O. alba, but the last evidence should be brought by a culture. When the animal legs touch the knobs, several knobs get glued together, and then the animal needs threefold power to get free. Here an insect that was captured possibly 2 days ago and is now already overgrown by the hyphae.

Hola. <br />En estos momentos que debemos quedarnos todos en casa, debemos aprovechar para rescatar viejos temas que no logramos identificar en su momento, os presento uno del año 2016.<br />Las imágenes fueron tomadas el 23 de Marzo de 2016 en cauce fluvial, donde predominaban los chopos (Populus).<br />Pequeños cuerpos algodonosos con un corto pié, de color blanco y con un diámetro de tan solo entre 0,16 a 0,25 mm., estos compartían espacio con unos ejemplares de Nectria peziza (en la imágen abajo a la derecha), aunque no creo que tengan ninguna relación con la especie descrita.<br />En su microscopía solo destacar unas hifas dispuestas paralelamente, ramificadas y terminando en unas hifas conidiógenas irregulares, con septos simples, con una anchura de entre 3,2 a 3,5 µm y con ensanchamientos que pueden llegar a las 6,2 µm.<br />Conidios entre ovoides y elipsoides, con una forma de limón, con muy tenue contenido en su interior y unas medidas de 18,2 a 21 X 12,9 a 16,1 µm.<br />Cualquier sugerencia será bienvenida.<br />Muchas gracias de antemano.<br />Saludos cordiales.
What is this ? Pachyphloeus ligericus cf. ?

Hello all. I hope someone can help. Found on 19.03.2022 on hardwood. Fruiting body approx 1mm large, hook+ IKI+ Unfortunately I did not find any spores. On the last picture there could be a spore on the left edge, but I am not sure. Maybe someone has an idea in which genus I should look.

Bonjour.<br />On m'a confié la détermination d'un Elaphomyces récolté ces jours sous Quercus pubescens, mesurant 18-30 mm de diamètre. J'hésite fortement entre deux taxons : E. cyanosporus et E. persoonii.<br />Quels sont les critères objectifs pour séparer ces deux espèces ?
Josep Torres, 06-04-2021
Hola.<br />Unos diminutos ascomicetos peludos, con forma esférica y color marrón verdoso, con unas medidas de entre 0,9 a 1,7 mm. de diámetro total, brotando en un pequeño tronco de arbusto indeterminado procedente de las labores de limpeza en un campo de cultivo, cerca de un cauce contínuo de agua destinado al regadío. En el mismo tronco y a unos pocos centímetros compartía espacio con unos diminutos ejemplares de <em>Cephalotrichum microsporum.<br /></em>Toda la superficie externa repleta de largos pelos marrones al microscopio, con una anchura de entre 2,1 a 4,3 µm. con muchos septos, algunos bifurcados en la base, y con el ápice hialino y terminado con formas redondeadas. La superficie de las hifas mayoritariamente con finas granulaciones.<br />Hifas del excípulo de textura angular, con unas medidas de 8.1 - 19.8 × 6 -14.6 µm.<br />Al comprimir la muestra al eclosionar, del interior surgen una gran cantidad de esporas, aunque no pude observar ascas, por lo que probablemente sean quizás un producto de hifas conidiógenas. En las imágenes añado una del himenio por si puede dar alguna pista.<br />Conidios o ascosporas de forma entre ovoide y cortamente elipsoide, con los extremos apuntados y en muchos casos como si las hubieran pellizcado, como en forma de limón, entre hialinas y de color marrón oscuro, probablemente por el estado de maduración, con una o dos grandes gotas lípidas en su interior y con abundantes granulaciones mas pequeñas, las medidas de estos conidios o ascosporas de:<br />(9.2) 11.3 - 13.4 (15) × (8) 8.6 - 10 (10.4) µm<br />Q = (1.1) 1.2 - 1.5 (1.7) ; N = 60<br />Me = 12.3 × 9.2 µm ; Qe = 1.3<br />Dentro de las Botryosphaeriaceae, lo más parecido que he encontrado sería ¿Diplodia?, también he buscado entre los Dothideomycetos sin nigún resultado.<br />Cualquier pista que me pueda acercar a su identidad será muy bien recibida.<br />Agradezco de antemano vuestra ayuda.<br />Saludos cordiales.<br /><br />

Salvador Tello, 01-04-2014
Hola a todos.<br /><br />Tengo estos peritecios que crecen en Pistacia lentiscus. Yo había pensado que podría ser Pleonectria virens, que también crece en alguna Anacardiaceae, pero no me termina de encajar, porque el hongo que os presento tiene las ascas más largas, uniseriadas, y las esporas no son hialinas. Supongo que Christian me podrá ayudar. Gracias.<br /><br /> Peritecios de aproximadamente 0,5 mm de ancho, generalmente gregarios, cubiertos por una capa escamosa de color amarillo-verdoso, que vista en el microscopio está formada por cristales rojos, con el ostiolo visible más oscuro. Los peritecios en KOH reaccionan desprendiendo y coloreándose de color amarillo-anaranjado. <br /><br />Ascas de (92,79) 94,16 - 116,03 (118,02) x (13,77) 14,28 - 17,17 (17,96) µm; Me = 105,24 x 15,80 µm, con 5 a 8 esporas. <br /><br />Esporas de (12,65) 14,57 - 19,64 (21,06) x (8,52) 9,72 - 11,68 (12,38) µm; Me = 17,06 x 10,73 µm ; Qe = 1,60, muriformes, con el septo primario más señalado, de color marrón-grisáceo, o ligeramente verdosas, que en KOH se colorean intensamente de verde y les aparece un envoltorio gelatinoso (generalmente a las más inmaduras).<br /><br /> Paráfisis mucho más largas que las ascas, hialinas, septadas, estrechándose en el ápice.<br /><br />Saludos.<br />Salvador.

Yesterday, during an inventarisation in Zoetermeer (The Netherlands) we found some ascomycetes on a leaf of Hedera. In my search to find the right species, I saw a topic on this forum which pointed to Lambertella tetrica. As far as I can see, all features seems to match my found. Am I right?  <br /><br />Spores: 23-26 x 5 mu<br /><br />With kind regards,<br /><br />Anna
Philipp Eschmann, 24-03-2022
Hello everyone<br /><br />I'm an amateur from Switzerland, this is my first post.<br /><br />I found this fungus on a dead branche at about 900m altitude. The closest fit I could find is Tryblis arnoldii, but im not quite convinced yet. The size of the asci differs quite a bit from the values given in Cryptogamica Helvetica 23. Also the Substrate doesn't really fit. It looks like Fagus or at least deciduous wood to me.<br /><br />Spores: 14.9 - 16.9 - 19.3 x 5.5 - 5.8 - 6.8. Q = 2.6 - 2.9 -3.4  n=14<br />Asci: ca. 90-100 x 13  IKI-<br /><br /><br />There are also Conidiomata present which look kinda similar in color. I wonder if it's the same fungus.<br /><br />Any suggestions?<br /><br />Best wishes<br />Philipp

J'envoie une image macro-micro d'une espèce ce matin. Je n'étudie pas ces groupes et je remercie une identification. Peut-être animez-moi avec ceux-ci, mais bufff. Aves des petits ascospores, 17-19 x 5-6 µm.
Bonjour, Comment ne pas craquer devant ce joli disco jaune semi-immergé ou immergé dans un ruisseau ? Je le rencontre fréquemment et ne sais comment l'appeler. N'ayant pas trop d'expérience dans la matière, je ne sais vers quel genre me tourner. Précision sur mes photos, l'unité étant le micron, cela donne des spores de 20-23 x 12 µm avec des verrues remarquables. Le connaissez-vous ?
Thomas Læssøe, 14-07-2020
See:<br /><br />This and a Swedish collection share the same characters.<br /><br />Ascomata seminectrioid with scurfy amber surface and conical ostioles; densely crowded or more scattered on soft rotten wood in ditch in a drained boggy forest area. Spores 16,2-18,5 x 5,3-5,9 µm, 2-celled, with terminal pores, sooty brown, multiguttulate, septum dark, thick; asci 8-spo., sp. uniseriate; apical appa. massive, lugol negative; paraphyses prominent, longer than asci, attenuated tow. the tips.<br />Some characters point in the direction of Submersisphaeria<br /><br />

Hello,<br />this ascomycete grew in a city in Czechia, on soil, 215 m asl.<br /><strong>Apothecia</strong> orange, up to 1.5 mm in diameter, smooth, sessile, rounded or slightly irregular. <br /><strong>Spores</strong> 19.5-22.5 x 12-13.5 micrometers, ellipsoid, thick-walled, hyaline, ornamented with very fine warts, without guttules.<br /><strong>Asci</strong> 235-260 x 32-35 micrometers, biseriate, longly clavate, in Lugol entirely blue.<br /><strong>Paraphyses</strong> containing orange pigment, straight, quite densely septate, sometimes branched or with short lateral projections, 4-6 micrometers broad in the middle, 6.5-11.5 at the apex, terminal cell 23-43 micrometers long.<br /><strong>Excipulum</strong> t. globoso-angularis, with cells measuring 17-46 micrometers in the longer dimension.<br />I looked to literature at Kotlabaea, Cheilymenia, Boubovia and many others, but something was always wrong.<br />I will be glad for your opinions.<br />Thanks,<br />Zuzana<br />

Hi to everybody:<br />Yesterday we have seen this lenticular to pulvinate totally whitish ascomata up to 5-6 mm in diam. that grows on Eriophorum angustifolium old leaves (and ericaceous host too) on very wet acid soil.<br />The ascomata are sessile on a very broad base and they are glabrous.<br /><br /><br />The medullary excipulum has a loose textura intricata without crystals that becomes very gelified at the cortex. I think the asci are IKI negative (or very faintly positive?). Croziers positive. The spores have a faintly gel sheath around them.<br />I think is not an Hymenoscyphus species but I don't know a good genus for it<br />What's your opinion?  <br />
Miguel Ángel Ribes, 21-05-2014
I have this Gyromitra (Discina), 5-8 cm diam., from an Abies forest and with Nicola's keys from I reach G. olympiana, but I never saw it before.<br /><br />Spores with 2 small appendages at ends, with a small and slight reticulum and 3 guttules.

Good evening! My friend Matthias Theiss found a beautiful Plectania in Portugal, 15.04.2008, Lago de Albufeira, near Lissabon. The diameter of the ascocarps was 1 cm. Substrate were twigs of Eucalyptus lying on a slope at an artificial lake. The soil was sandy and covered with a forest of Pinus pinea and Eucalyptus, there were different kinds of fern and Arum. Accompanying fungi were Arachnopeziza aurelia, Phellinus pini, Pisolithus arrhizos, Laccaria tortilis. I enclose a foto and a foto of the spores. What do you think, is it Plectania rhytidia? Thank you for your opinion Hermine

Hola amigos:<br />Hace unos dias recogí en excrementos de conejo silvestre una especie de <em>Pseudombrophila</em> que de acuerdo con las medidas esporales y con una clave que baje de internet hace unos años  y que suelo utilizar me ha llevado a <em><strong>Pseudombrophila leporum, </strong></em>aunque veo que muy prooxima a esta puede estar <em><strong>P<em>s</em>eudombrophila misturae.</strong></em>Me gustaria saber si alguno teneis experiencia en estos dos  tipo de ascomycete y como podeis llegar a diferenciar una de la otra.Si solamente existen diferencias microscopicas en en ancho esporal o hay algun que otro caracter diferenciador. <br />Ahi os dejo una pequeña descripcion de la especie en cuestion:<br /><br /> <em>Pseudombrophila leporum</em>¿¿ <p>Ascomas de forma discoidal con la superficie aplanada o ligermente cóncava. De 1 a 3(-4 mm.) mm. de diámetro. Superficie lisa. De color marrón rojizo, a marrón dátil, mas oscuro en hacia el borde del apotecio..Margen poco diferenciado. Ascas cilíndricas, de hasta 150 µm de longitud, octospóricas, con el ápice no amiloide. Ascosporas de forma anchamente elipsoidales, uniseriadas oblicuamente dentro del asca, hialinas y lisas. Paráfisis muy numerosas, ramificadas con gran numero de septos , ligeramente infladas en los ápices y en algunos tramos de los septos intemedios .

Dear forum,<br /><br />On hard wood I found this pyrenomycete with anamorph (second picture).<br />At first thought of an Amphisphaeria-species but those have coloured spores as far as I know.<br />Perithecia partly immersed, with short necks as small dots on the upper part; spores two- sometimes three-celled, hyaline, smooth, 17.5 - 23; asci eight-spored, uni-/biseriate, about 125 - 135, ascus-tip not reacting in J.<br /><br />Kind regards,<br /><br />Aafke
Miguel Ángel Ribes, 31-12-2021
Hi guys<br /><br />It is difficult to me to explan this in english, so I am going to write in spanish, sorry.<br /><br />El pasado 26/12 encontre nuevamente una pequeña colección de Thurmenidium atropurpureum, ya la tenía vista y estudiada del mismo sitio.<br /><br />Al intentar confirmarla al micro la sorpresa es que aparecen ascas con ascosporas hialinas, multigutuladas y sin septos, como corresponde a la especie, pero también numerosas ascas con esporas marrones, multigutuladas y con 7 septos, típicas de Geoglossum. Así que miré los 5 ejemplares de la muestra, habiendo esporas oscuras típicas de Geoglossum en 4 de los 5, sólo 1 muestra presentaba únicamente esporas hialinas.<br /><br />Los hechos son los siguientes:<br /><br />* Las ascas con ascosporas hialinas están vivas, y las ascosporas también.<br />* Las ascas con ascosporas marrones están muertas, pero las ascosporas están vivas.<br />* Todas las ascosporas vivas expulsadas espontáneamente de las ascas durante la observación son hialinas y sin septos. No se han observados esporas marrones y septadas expulsadas de las ascas, todas permanencen dentro de las ascas muertas.<br />* En 4 de 5 ejemplares de la colección hay ascas con esporas hialinas y marrones.<br />* No se trata de una contaminación, ambos tipos de ascas están intercaladas unas con otras en el himenio, y no estuve estudiando antes ningún Geoglossum.<br />* El patrón de gútulas de ambos tipos de ascosporas, hialinas y marrones, es el mismo, alrededor de 18-20 grandes gútulas redondas, la única diferencia es que las ascosporas marrones tienen 7 septos.<br /><br />Hipótesis:<br />1.- Las ascosporas inmaduras de T. atropurpureum son oscuras y septadas y al madurar se vuelven hialinas y pierden los septos. Poco probable.<br />2.- Las ascosporas de las ascas muertas de T. atropurpureum se vuelven marrones y se septan, pero aún así siguen vivas. Más probable.<br /><br />¿Alguien ha observado la presencia de esporas de Geoglossum en un Microglosum o Thuemenidium?<br /><br />Gracias por vuestras opiniones.<br /><br />Miguel Á. Ribes

Bonsoir à tous, La dernière fiche d'ASCOfrance envoyée par Enrique ( superbe comme d'habitude !!! la fiche) et décrivant Dasyscypha calyculiformis var. latebricola a suscité chez moi deux questions: L'une d'ordre étymologique : que veut dire latebricola ??? mon dictionnaire latin du 19 eme siècle me donne : personne qui fréquente les lieux de débauche !! (Plaute). Pour un petit asco ça veut peut-être dire : qui se loge dans une cachette secrète ? ce qui, expliquerait pourquoi je ne l'ai jamais trouvé en Ardenne. L'autre d'ordre taxinomique : ce champignon est manifestement (pour moi ) un Capitotricha et je trouve bizarre que Enrique soit obligé de choisir un genre devenu obsolète (toujours à mes yeux) comme Dasyscypha ou Dasyscyphus. Est-ce par manque de synonymie prioritaire ? Pourquoi pas Capitotricha latebricola ? Ce serait une espèce à part entière elle me semble bien mériter l'honneur de ne pas être une simple variété. Qu'en pensez vous? Amitiés. Robert

salut asco-friends, i don't speak french - sorry. has anybody out there a key for leucoscypha? i think i have leucoscypha semiimmersa here, but i'm not 100% sure, only 90% ;-) it was growing between pulvinula constellatio ... further: does anybody know the current name of the taxon? i think there is a bit confusion ... best wishes dirk

Hello,<br />I have here an ascomycete collected in Moravia, in elevation 220 m a.s.l., on strongly decayed stem of a broad-leaved tree (dominant species in the place are Populus tremula, Betula pendula and Alnus glutinosa). <br />Ascospores hyaline, sometimes septate, (7.6) 9.7 - 12.1 (13.7) × (2.4) 2.7 - 3.1 (3.4) µm<br />Q = (2.5) 3.2 - 4.3 (5.4, Me = 10.7 × 2.9 µm; Qe = 3.7<br />Asci without croziers, IKI+, MLZ+, (49.3) 53.5 - 64.3 (73.7) × (7.1) 7.7 - 8.5 (8.9) µm<br />Q = (6.3) 6.33 - 8.4 (9.5), Me = 59 × 8.1 µm; Qe = 7.3.<br />Hairs are smooth.<br /><br />Using Seppo Huhtinen´s key, I came to Hyaloscypha herbarum, although the asci are longer. Also the pattern of lipid bodies is different than I can see in Enrique Rubio´s photos.<br />Can somebody confirm H. herbarum or suggest a better option?<br />Thank you, Zuzana<br />

<div>Bonjour tous</div> <div>While processing images of this delightful little fungus I noticed that some of the ascospores show a distinct hyaline "sheath". I dismissed the possibility that it was an artefact, largely because it does not show on all the spores photographed in exactly the same way. As you can see it is also evident in the spore seen "end on". </div> <div>I can easily see that this might be missed by normal light microscopy but wondered whether any other members have noticed this phenomenon?</div> <div>Cordialement, Chris</div>

J'emploie actuellement une équipe reflex Nikon D 70 avec soufflet d'augmentation. cela va très bien, mais pour les plus grandes augmentations, de 8-13 x les buts que je possède (24 mm Sigma) qui étaient bons à l'équipe argéntico ne donnent pas de bon détail maintenant. J'ai acheté 28 mm Nikon, mais le résultat à grandes augmentations ne me semble pas de qualité, je me demande qu'elle expérience ont d'autres membres du forum.

Buenos días<br /><br />El otro día me trajeron estas Plectania de 4-6 x 1-1,5 cm de un bosque mixto de Pinus y Quercus, separadas entre ellas por unos 100 m, saliendo en zona donde predominaba el Quercus y no había Pinus cerca.<br /><br />El borde es festoneado, el exterior está cubierta por una densa malla de pelos marrones-negruzcos, sobre todo en la base, no tiene látex.<br /><br />El <strong>excípulo ectal</strong> tiene textura subglobulosa-angularis, de células oscuras, marrones, con numerosos pelos marrones, largos, sinuosos, septados.<br /><br />El <strong>excípulo medular</strong> tiene textura intricata, de color claro, no se aprecia que sea gelatinoso. En su interior se aprecia de forma dispersa algo parecido a los pelos externos o pequeñas manchas marrones en las hifas, que recuerdan vagamente a los "finger-prints" de Otidea bufonia. No son abundantes como los señalados en "Contribution to the knowledge of Plectania milleri, a Northwestern American species" de Carbone, Agnello y Harnisch, pero sí están presentes.<br /><br />El <strong>subhimenio</strong> tiene textura intricata, de color claro.<br /><br />Las <strong>ascas</strong> son muy largas, octospóricas, uniseriadas, IKI -, con la base en zig-zag y en ocasiones bifurcadas, de (344) 370,9 - 458,3 (494) × (10) 11,6 - 14,9 (15,9) µm; N = 27; Me = 418,8 × 13,1 µm.<br /><br />Las <strong>paráfisis</strong> son de 2 tipos: unas estrechas cilíndricas y ramificadas en el ápice y con forma de cuerno; otras más gruesas, no ramificadas y con paredes más gruesas, en ocasiones más coloreadas, que podríamos llamar "setas".<br /><br />Las <strong>esporas</strong> son elipsoidales, bastante alargadas, lisas, en ocasiones con una cobertura gelatinosa en los laterales (no se han apreciado en los polos), y con <strong>4 núcleos</strong>, de (22,3) 23,4 - 26,8 (29,4) × (9,2) 9,6 - 11,2 (12,1) µm; Q = (2) 2,1 - 2,7 (3,2); N = 61; Me = 25 × 10,5 µm; Qe = 2,4.<br /><br />Con estos datos, viendo el artículo anteriormente citado, sólo llego a Plectania milleri, especie conocida únicamente en Estados Unidos. Aunque hay algunas discrepancias con lo citado en el artículo mencionado (el subhimenio es claro, el excípulo medular no es gelatinoso y no se menciona que las esporas tengan 4 núcleos) quizá se deban al estudio de material seco frente a este nuestro en vivo.<br /><br />Gracias por vuestra opinión.<br /><br />Miguel Á. Ribes

J'ai trouvé dans un même lieu deux espèces de Mollisia stériles, avec abondance de parafisos, ascas peu abondantes, à l'intérieur des ascas on ne voit pas de spores mais petits conidios. Je connais de l'existence de champignons que parasitan à quelques ascomicetes, qui vivent inclus à l'intérieur de ses ascas, mais je n'ai pas de milieu de les identifier, ce doit être un difficile travail, j'envoie le schéma par si un collegue a une idée.

Chris Yeates, 14-11-2021
<div>Bonjour tous</div> <div>I have been doing some collecting on <em>Rubus fruticosus</em> (agg.) recently, and this is one of several Helotiales I have encountered.</div> <div>Apothecia subsessile up to 300µm diameter, minutely downy, starting creamy and turning rusty-red, basal cells thick-walled, globose, running into elongated rather glassy hyphae, the terminal excipular cells rather thick-walled and ending in cells with refractive contents as can be seen in the images.</div> <div>Asci 8-spored, in IKI deep blue, I could not see any croziers. Paraphyses often with extensive continuous to interrupted vacuolar contents. Ascospores (7.2)8.1-8.9 x 2.7-3.2µm, guttules as seen in the images. Enrique Rubio commented recently that many spores of Helotiales, when freshly ejected show a sort of "sheath"; in this instance a number of spores showed a sort of "halo" at one end - see image.</div> <div>Associated with this apothecium were a number of two-celled hyaline bodies which appear fungal; these can be seen in the final photograph but also in #2.</div> <div>I was wondering about Pezizellaceae? As ever, any comments would be appreciated.</div> <div>Amitiés</div> Chris

Bonjour à tous, Un voisin m'a apporté une "truffe jaune " de son jardin sous pommier. Odeur faible agréable indéfinissable (demi exemplaire un peu séché.) taille 2,5 X 1,5 X 1,5 cm à bosses très arrondies extériur ocre jaune. Peridium lisse épaisseur 0;2-0,3 mm blanc très distinct de la gléba elle même couleur liège à brun-moyen. "fils" blanchâtres 0,5 mm un peu rayonnants. Peu de crevasses ou failles. Asques vides en poches transparentes subsphériques 100 X 65 µm 1,2,3 ou 4 sporiques Moyenne 3 Spores brunes elliptiques réticulées en nid d'abeille Réticule hexagonal 4 à 8 µm hauteur 5 µm Taille hors tout des spores: (1) 65 X 45 µm (2) 50 X 40 (3) 45 X 35 µm (4) 40 X 30 µm retrancher 10 µm environ pour mesures sans réticule Je n'ai que la clé de Nordic ascomycetes et trouve Tuber rapiodorum plutôt que borchii Spores plus elliptiques moyenne du nombre de spores dans l'asque 3 au lieu de 1,5 et peridium bien distinct de la gléba. Remarques: sur le Net rapiodorum semble plus connu sous le nom de rapaeodorum rapaeodorum = puberulum ( Riousset ? ) En 2005 Trappe a fait des séquences ADN de truffes blanches :foetidum, maculatum, borchii, puberulum et rapaeodorum et semble affirmer que ce sont tous de bonnes espèces. (magnatum ???). Pouvez vous m'aider dans ce domaine mal connu dans les Ardennes ? Je n'ai pas la clé de Riousset 2001 Merci d'avance. Robert

Hola.<br />Un Piremomyceto recogido este pasado domingo brotando de manara masiva sobre la superficie de un tronco cerca de un riachuelo y al lado de un bosque de pinos.<br />Peritecios negros, globosos, de pared gruesa, con superficie delicadamente verrucosa y una discreta protuberancia en su parte superior.<br />De pequeño tamaño, con un diámetro de entre 0,15 a 0,27 mm.<br />Ascos octospóricos, sin aparente reacción de su diminuto aparato apical ni al IKI y tampoco al Melzer.<br />Paráfisis filiformes e hilainas, inamiloides al Melzer que sobresalen poco por encima del nivel de los ascos.<br />Ascosporas fusiformes, algunas discretamente alantoides, de las que se producen y se desprenden de sus extremos unas pequeñas microsporas.<br />Las ascosporas obtenidas por esporulación natural y en agua con unas medidas de:<br />(17.4) 18.3 - 23.4 (24.6) × (3.2) 3.3 - 4.5 (5.5) µm<br />Q = (4.1) 4.8 - 6.1 (6.9) ; N = 30<br />Me = 20.7 × 3.9 µm ; Qe = 5.4<br />Las microsporas con unas medidas de:<br />(4.4) 4.8 - 5.4 (5.8) × (1.4) 1.6 - 1.9 (2.1) µm<br />Q = (2.5) 2.7 - 3.1 (3.8) ; N = 30<br />Me = 5.1 × 1.7 µm ; Qe = 2.9<br /><br />Consultando el trabajo de Baral, lo más parecido por sus características sería una Chaetosphaeriaceae. Lo curioso es que estudios parecidos a este ya habían salido por aquí antes, dejo un par de enlaces:<br /><br /><br />A día de hoy el primero sigue sin respuesta y con el segundo se baraja la posibilidad de que se trate de Chaetosphaeria pulviscula, pero he consultado los trabajos de Reblova y aunque siguiendo sus Claves me conducen a la Chaetosphaeria pulviscula, Reblova no menciona en su trabajo estas microsporas tan abundantes en mis muestras.<br />Cualquier oponión por vuestra parte será bien recibida.<br />Muchas gracias de antemano.<br />Saludos cordiales.

I made an abundant collection of some Preussia/Sporormiella on dung of hazel grouze (Tetrastes bonasia) in western Finland. It is somewhere in the neighbourhood of leporina - subtilis but I have difficulties in finding a good match. <p>The spores are (26.7) 27.8 - 34.9 (36.9) × (4.8) 5.0 - 6.3 (6.8) µm, soon breaking up into four part spores. The asci are (108.7) 120.4 - 151.5 (184.7) × (10.1) 11.6 - 14.2 (14.6) µm. Other details in the photos.</p> <p>Ideas, anybody?</p> <p>------</p> <p>Update: I was wrong about the substrate - it is black grouse (Tetrao/Lyrurus tetrix).</p>

En zona arenosa incendiada hace año y medio, sobre arena pura o rodeados de musgos varios. Apotecios de hasta 8 mms de diámetro, de coloración que veis. Ascas cilíndricas, no amiloides, operculadas, octospóricas, monoseriadas. Ascosporas elípticas, lisa hialinas, la mayoría bigutuladas de 15-17´5 x 9-10 micras. Parafísis con contenido anaranjado, medidas hasta 175 x 11(en ápice) micras.

<br />Hello, <p>I have collected several times a pyrenomycete that keeps me busy. All the collections were made on Phragmites culms.</p> <p>Perithecia immersed, erumpent. Asci cylindrical 157-179 x 10-11 µm, with a well developed apical pore, amyloid in IKI. Spores 1-septate, dark greenish brown, with a long germ slit in each cell, without gelatinous caps or appendices (no China ink tested), 17-23.5 x 7.5-8.5 µm.</p> <p>I think it must belong to Amphisphaeriaceae due to its 2-celled pigmented spores and asci with amyloid apparatus, but I fail to find any species with similar spores in the family, especially with those germ slits (which I would say are more typical in Xylariaceae). I compared it first with Cainia griminis, but it has longer spores with several germ-slits at the end of the spores. It keys out in Amphisphaeria according to Barr, but I do not find any species with similar spores in the genus.</p> <p>Any hint? Anything I might have missed?</p> <p>Thank you in advance!</p> <p>Ibai.</p>

<div>These very small (the yellow stuff is pollen) Cistellas were growing on a dead stem of Juncus sp.</div> <div>There were some budding things (conidia?) In all the preparations I made. Not sure if this is from the Cistella, or some contamination. The spores measure 8.2 - 10.1 × 1.9 - 2.1 µm, asci without croziers.</div> <div>The spores are pretty narrow, but otherwise the folder "Cistella subfugiens" would seem to be similar to this.</div>

Gilbert MOYNE, 13-06-2010
Voici un petit champignon découvert vendredi 12 juin sur tige morte de graminée, sans doute Dactylis glomerata. Apothécies stipitées, pas remaqué de stroma. Coupe de 2-3 mm de diamètre, un peu frangée à la marge. Hyménium à reflets rosâtres. Asques curieusement renflés juste avant le sommet, autrement cylindriques, munis de crochets, J+, contenant 8 spores bisériées, 120-150 x 11-12 Parphyses contenant denombreuses gouttes, arrondies mais non renflées au sommet. Spores cylindriques, parfois un peu arquées, hyalines, 3-septées, 24-35 x 3-4 µm Pas de fourreau autour des spores. Je n'arrive à rien. Si vous connaissez ... Merci Gilbert
Javier Ormad, 31-12-2010
Happy new year, at 12 p.m., of the 12 asci in a leaf of something more about 12 mm Bonne année, à 12 heures, des 12 asques sur une feuille un peu plus de 12 mm Feliz año nuevo, a partir de las 12 p. m., de los 12+1 ascos sobre una hoja de algo más de 12 mm. Salud Javier

<p>Bonsoir,</p> <p>Voici une espèce sur branche morte de Vaccinium, trouvé au sol à 1'710 m, apothécies 0.25 - 0.5 mm, vert, marge et surface externe couvert de poils, sessile, asques 40 - 51 x 7 - 9 µm, IKI-, spores filiformes 35 - 42 x 1.75 - 2.5 µm, paraphyses septées, poils 25 - 55 x 3 - 4 µm.</p> <p>Quelqu'un aurait-il une idée? Merci d'avance.</p> <p>Elisabeth</p>
Estimados amigos.<br /> Fotografiada en tronco de Alianthus altissima. Mi sorpresa ha sido cuando al efectuar un corte para hacer la foto, la masa interna es blanda, sobre todo la de la zona central que es de consistencia elástica/gelatinosa. Aunque no envío datos microscópicos, por inmadurez de los ascomas, mi pregunta es si  ¿ con esa característica de la carne solo hay D. gelatinosa o también lo tienen otras especies de este género.<br /> <br /><br />Con mi agradecimiento anticipado, envío saludos cordiales<br /><br />Aurelio García Blanco<br />Valladolid.

Hi to all, how're?<br />I'm searching for this paper "Studies of coprophilous sphaeriales in Ontario", 1934, by Roy F. Cain. Someone can help me, please, sending me a PDF of this work?<br />Thanks alot in advance!<br />Francisco.<br />
Alain GARDIENNET, 04-12-2008
Bonsoir, J'ai trouvé 2 Lophiostoma sur Ruscus : L. caulium et celui-ci qui me pose problème. Des ascomes noirs globuleux, de diamètre 300µm environ, paroi de 35-40µm, immergés sous l'épiderme du Ruscus, llaissant apparaître un ostiole en surface plutôt cylindrique que compressé latéralement, à peine une petite fente visible. Asques bituniqués, cylindriques rétrécis à la base, de 100-120 x 12-14µm. Ascospores obliquement unisériées, brunes, trois cloisons transversales, 0, 1 ou 2 longitudinales, de 14-19 x 5.3-6µm, à extrémités assez arrondies. Après avoir un temps pensé à Thyridaria rubronotata, je me suis tourné vers les Lophiostoma. J'avais pensé d'emblée à L. quadrinucleatum var triseptatum (nom peu original, convenons-en), mais mes spores sont trop petites. Je suis coincé. J'ai éliminé les espèces affines à compressum, de par l'aspect macroscopique. Merci si vous pouvez me décoincer. Alain
Valencia Lopez Francisco Javier, 02-09-2019
Hola a todos/as<br />Adjunto fotos de unos supuestos Iodophanus, recolectados en el norte de España, crecían en el suelo, entre el césped (Gramíneas) de una piscina cerca de setos de cipreses (Cupressus sp), muy probablemente relacionado con excrementos y orines de pequeños roedores, topillos (Microtus arvalis)<br />Ascomas de hasta 1,8mm de diámetro.<br />Esporas elipsoidales, con núcleo central, presenta una ornamentación muy difusa y difícil de observar, adjunto varias fotos en varios tipos de montaje a ver que pensáis? Yo creo que no están ornamentadas y son lisas.<br />De: 15,2 [16,2 ; 16,6] 17,6 × 11,8 [12,3 ; 12,5] 13,0 µm.<br />Ascas con 8 esporas, de paredes amiloides en IKI y base pleurorrincas?.<br />Paráfisis con septos, bifurcadas cerca de la base y pigmentos carotenoides de color naranja.<br />Excípulo ectal de textura globosa/angularis y E. medular intrincada.<br />A ver qué pensáis, a mí no me cuadra con ninguno de los Iodophanus consultados.<br />Gracias anticipadas y saludos a todos.<br />Curro Valencia
Salvador Tello, 23-03-2016
Hola a todos.<br /><br />He cogido unos hongos que pienso que puede ser Paratrichophaea boudieri, pero me hacen dudar las esporas multigutuladas y tampoco he leído nada sobre el contenido de las paráfisis. ¿Que os parece?<br /><br />Apotecios hasta de 6 mm, creciendo de marera gregaria sobre pequeñas ramas y acículas en descomposición de Pinus halepensis, cupuliformes, con el himenio liso, blancuzco y el margen y exterior cubiertos de pelos marrones.<br />Pelos hasta de 850 µm de longitud, generalmente acuminados, multiseptados, marrones, de paredes gruesas, en algunos casos de base bulbosa. Escípulo ectal compuesto por células hialinas de textura gobulosa o gobuloso-angular. Escípulo medular compuesto por células alargadas, hialinas, de textura intrincada. Ascas de (270-)290-325(-330) × (11,5-)13, 5-18,5(19) µm, cilíndricas, estrechándose en la base, octospóricas, operculadas, no amiloides, con crociers en la base. Ascósporas de (18-)19-22,5(-23,5) × (8-)8,5-10(-11) µm, Q = (1,8-)2-2,4(-2,7), N = 90, Me = 20,9 × 9,3 µm, Qe = 2,2, de estrecha a largamente elipsoidales, lisas hialinas, multigutuladas en su interior. Paráfisis cilíndricas , septadas, multigutuladas en su interior, con el ápice poco o nada engrosado de (2,8) 3,1 - 4,3 (5) µm de anchura.<br /><br />Saludos.<br />Salvador.<br />
Michel Hairaud, 12-04-2006
Bonsoir , Je viens de voir la photo de E Rubio de Fuscolachnum dumorum. La largeur des paraphyses a t-elle été meurée et si oui quelle est elle ? J'ai trouvé dans une récolte des paraphyses larges de 5-6 µm, ce qui coorespond au double de la taille normale, je crois. Avez vous des précisions ? (cf; photo ci dessous) Amitiés Michel
Rubén Martínez Gil, 08-02-2013
Hola a todos.<br /><br />Van fotos de Peziza encontrada sobre restos de papel y cartón quemados dentro de un contenedor.<br /><br />Esporas lisas de 15,6-18,2 x 9,4-11, Q=1,5-1,8 para n=96.<br /><br />¿Puede ser Peziza cerea?<br /><br />Gracias
Salvador Tello, 05-06-2014
Hola a todos.<br /><br />Hace unos días encontré estos hongos creciendo sobre  Pterospartum tridentatum. Yo creo que es Capitotricha, aunque no me encaja con ninguna. Me gustaría conocer su opinión. Gracias.<br /><br />Apotecios creciendo en tallos muertos de Pterospartum tridentatum, hasta de 1 mm, cupuliformes, ligeramente estipitados, con el exterior y margen cubierto de pelos blancos, e himenio amarillo-anaranjado. Pelos hialinos, septados, cubiertos de pequeños gránulos, y a veces con algunos cristales en los ápices. Ascas de 85,57 - 98,55 x 11,33 - 13,47 µm, octospóricas, con el poro apical amiloide y croziers en la base. Ascosporas de (16,60) 18,62 - 25,10 (27,10) x (3,93) 4,10 - 5,24 (5,41) µm; Me = 21,45 x 4,82 µm ; Qe = 4,47, irregularmente biseriadas, hialinas, con 3-6 septos transversales, ligeramente constreñidas en los septos. Paráfisis lanceoladas, septadas, con pequeñas gotas de pigmento amarillo-anaranjado en su interior.<br /><br />Saludos.<br />Salvador.<br /><br />

Salut, je suis ces jours en vacances de navidad et cherche un Mollisia qui est pour moi un vieux problème; j'ai trouvé de nouveau Helicogonium et à son côté un anamorfo. Et je me demande si celui-ci peut être anamorfo d'Helicogonium puisque je ne sais(puisque je connais aucun). amitiés Carlos
Rubén Martínez Gil, 23-06-2017
<p>Hola a todos.</p> <p>Subo unas fotos de unas Anthracobia que encontramos en restos de hoguera en la zona de Valle del Lago.</p> <p>Esporas 18-19 x 7-8 micras.</p> <p>Allí mismo, Gilbert Moyne comentó que podría ser A. tristis, yo creo que bien interpretado.</p> <p>Enrique, creo que esta especie, de confirmarse, está sin citar en el Parque.</p> <p>Saludos</p> <p>Rubén</p>
