Mycoacia perhaps ?

Post by Wood Wanderer » Tue Jul 26, 2016 7:36 pm

Rarely look at resupinates, far too difficult, but as this seemed to have distinctive spines I have had a go ...

Looks to me like a Mycoacia but I assume there are other candidates, presumably not M. uda as no sign of any yellow colouring.

This was on the underside of a piece of willow lying next to a small pond.
Any help gratefully received

Hi John,
There are quite a number of toothed crusts, and I've identified several from Longshaw Estate. They are lovely but crusts nearly always need microcropy.
Just looking at the spores would be a very big help.
Buczacki's Collins Guide is very useful as it gives a lot of species, ie 3 kinds of Mycoacia.
Have you got a microscope?
If not, I would look at the spores if you could get a deposit to send to me,
