This was found on a vertical face of peat growing on the underlying Sphagnum and surrounded by Botryococcus braunii. 100-125 µm across.
Conidia 3-septate, 5.8-7.2 x 1.8-2.4 µm.
Any clues welcome.

Hi
any idea how / where the conidia are formed?

Unfortunately not, despite my best efforts.

My guess is that these are conidiomata of a species of the lichen genus Micarea, but it's a troublesome group and I'd struggle to ID it even with the specimen in front of me. Sorry not to be of more help...
