Enrique RubioThese apothecia grew in a decorticated branch of hardwood of 10 mm thick, fallen to the ground, product of a pruning.The hymenium is dextrinoid and the ascospores are multiseptate. I think in Karstenia as a good genus for it.
What do you think?
This collection is from central Spain at 1000 m of altitude, april 6(2019).
Many thanks again

Re : Karstenia?
Hi Enrique
With Karstenia I agree. It could be valuable to make a KOH-pretreatment and test in IKI or MLZ (both the same), you will get a blue hymenium (hemiamyloid, not dextrinoid!) and perhaps a small blue  apical ring becomes visible under oil immersion, depending on the species. Dextrinoid would mean red in MLZ whereas your pic clearly shows no reaction in MLZ.

Re : Karstenia?
Hi Enrique, do you observe longitudinal wrinkles on the ascospores at all?

Re : Karstenia?
No, Jason. I haven't observed any ornamentation on the spores.

Re : Karstenia?
From dried, not fresh material:
*Mlz. + KOH-pret. = negative
*IKI + KOH-pret. = reddish, not blue
I haven't observed any bluish apical pore.

Re : Karstenia?
Sorry, but your KOH pretreatment must have been very weak. I cannot imagine that an ostropalen fungus does not turn to an I-blue reaction even if exposed to 1-2% KOH for a few seconds only.
