Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Enrique Rubio, 07-09-2014 00:14
Enrique Rubio

Hi again


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.


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.


 


Any idea?


Thanks again

For me this is Calycellina leucella. When you make a plate of it I would be pleased to receive it.

Thanks

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves

Hi Zotto. Thanks for your opinion. At the same place, but on Betula leaves, I think that I have found the typical Calycellina leucella with strangulate broader ascospores and a very different type, obtuse, of marginal cells. Really do you think they are the same fungus?


 


I send you the images at higher resolution

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Were they macroscopically similar? I remember that C. leucella is very variable, and also i remember these spore width differences. Correlated with this you have a difference in ascus width, and it would be helpful to give a range for this in the Betula collection. Does ascus width overlap? Are different apothecia of a population constant?

These protrudin marginal cells I know, but it would not be easy to check all my observations for a correlation perhaps with the substrate.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Macroscopically they are somewhat similar but I think leucella is more gelatinized (allways I took it for an Allophylaria species!). The asci are broader in leucella (x 9-10) and I think the ascospore morphology is very different: 'calycinoide' or strangulate in leucella vs scutuloid in this other.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
I recommend you to check my images for a correlation with your data. I know this strangulation very well, but I would say scutuloid to both. Also in Hymenoscyphus such strangulation occurs. Allophylaria is a close genus but has usually IKI-red apical rings.

With two samples alone it is impossible to tell whether the observed variation concerns two species or not.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves

Yes, Zotto. Yes. Of course more observation are needed for to think in a new species.


Thanks for your replay

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Nina had a collection on Andromeda as Allophylaria basalifusca, and I said this is the same as C. leucella. It had the narrow spores, so it might be that Ericaceae have narrower spores.

A. basalifusca has wide spores and was on Quercus. Also a find on Alnus cones and leaves had wider spores: Calycellina leucella, VII.2011. I actually see this correlation also with further of my images. And indeed, Calycellina leucella, HB 6225b.JPG has the narrow spores and is on Vaccinium, also it has these hairs! I remember to have noticed these differences but was unable to draw a conclusion.

 Descriptions of C. leucella are probably few. What is it in its original sense??

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Yes. I had seen that Graddon mistook this fungus too with an Allophylaria species!

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Here is my database. Seems that Ericaceae do not occur. But Spore width is partly rather narrow. Perhaps because of shrinkage....

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
I looked through my files and notes and find that I have a couple of records on Vaccinium. All of them have these narow spores, partly not reachning 2.5 µm! Those on trees were always broad, mostly far above 3 µm.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Do you know if these collections have ascospores as the mine: narrowly fusiform with apical part inflated and recurved?

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Adio Enrique,
Adio Zotto,

During ascomycete alpine session in Pyrenees, at the end of august, I have found a similar "Calycellina" on nerves of Vaccinum myrtillus. I have given them to Michel Hairaud or Brigitte Capoen. Perhaps, they have study them and will participate to this post... I don't know.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves
Many of my notes are unillustrated and in some I have mentioned a bit spore shape. But here I have two rough illustrations which were not scanned.

3071b is on Vaccinium and shows the "hairs". Spores inside the living asci 14-18 x 1.5-2, outside 2.5.

3542 is on Alnus cones. Spores wide, no hairs seen. 

Anm apical spore inflation  I do not see on your pics, and apical curves ar seen in both on your pics.

Re : Whitish Calycellina on Vaccinium leaves

The spores on Vaccinium are a bit capitate and curved. Your illustration on Vaccinium uliginosum seems to be identical with mine and the gel on 'hairs' feets well with my own observations. The Alnus cones one is close to 'my' leucella on Betula leaves, with more 'calycinoid', strangulate, ascospores.


Thanks, Beñat! Maybe Michel or Brigitte say us something
