Possible Peziza polaripapulata

Post by FungiJohn » Thu May 28, 2015 2:57 pm

Hi all

I recently found this Ascomycete in Anston Stones Wood growing on the underside of a very wet 'rotting' Fraxinus log.
The Spores measured 17 x 8 microns. Ascus tips blue in Melzers,

Any help, comments much appreciated ... even if it's send to AscoFrance :)

Best Wishes - John

Hi John (or should I say "Bonsoir" - hint hint :lol: )
certainly looks like the fungus posted here: http://www.ascofrance.com/search_forum/29623 (perhaps you've already looked at that). That's where I'd post this, especially with good images like these. Would this be new to the UK?

cheers
Chris

PS I'll email you a paper with a full description of P. polaripapulata . . .

Bonsoir Chris and thanks for the reply and email.

I've very little of the material and as not been able to detect croziers, but I do suspect they are there! Will post on AscoFrance as suggested ;)

Cheers - John

What a surprise and pleasure to have Andreas reply to my post on AscoFrance :)

I'll have another look at the material tomorrow and update.
