Bitunicate asco on bark of a leaving trunk of Fagus
Enrique Rubio, 21-03-2012 17:32
Enrique Rubio

Hi to all:
These blackish, small (up to 700 microns), gregarious, solitary, globose and semiinmersed pseudothecia  were at 2-3 m high on bark of a leaving Fagus sylvatica. They seem to be ostiolate but I'm not sure.

The spores are finally brownish or gloden brown and inconspicually 1-septate. Asci not unitunicate. Pseudoparaphyses are present.
Have you some idea ?
Many thanks again
Enrique

Re : Bitunicate asco on bark of a leaving trunk of Fagus

Thank you, Thomas. I have been looking at images of Pyrenula and I believe that you are right.

I have no experience with Pyrenula, but I considered that you have Navicella pileata. Torsten Richter and I investigated this species a bit, and this turned out to be quite difficult because of variation in spore size and number of cells.

Navicella is placed in Pyrenulales. Now, what about the difference to Pyrenula? A thallus only?

But now I see the spores of Enrique's fungus are much smaller than in Navicella. What is nice to see on your images is the difference of living and dead cells: roundish and with a globose drop when alive, angular and with indistnct contents when dead.

Re : Bitunicate asco on bark of a leaving trunk of Fagus
I read that some Pyrenula species react red in KOH in the perithecium. Did you test with KOH?

Pyrenula is said to have Trentepohlia algae (with orange LBs in the cells) in their thallus. Can you find any thallus?
