|Spores - typical smooth, hyaline, ellipsoid, j-|
|Pileipellis - somewhat dry (see later!)|
|Rehydrated "dryophila type" pileipellis cell!|
Another asco which caused initial confusion was this nice fat jelly from cherry tree bark - a Cudoniella sp. (C. clavus var grandis)
From that overstuffed roundness we went to the spikiness of Scopuloides rimosa
Also brought along for our viewing pleasure was this cheeky little orange basidiomycete, something of a rarity, having a go at some Peniophora incarnata. I've clearly written its name down wrongly so I'll wait until I have that properly from Ellis & Ellis later
Last, but not least was this odontoid specimen which was still under scrutiny when I left
Not a bad night with a nice breadth of material to look at. There's an increase in asco-bothering activity but we did manage a couple of resupinates at least, and the ascos were nice.
