Phaeosphaeria herpotrichoides, Red Moss
Once I got over the idea that the piece of herbaceous stem I had in my hand was Juncus I was able to track this down to Phaeosphaeria herpotrichoides. Should help identify its cohabiting smaller pyrenomycete too.
Tucked under the surface with ostiole exposed
Spores olivey-yellow en masse in the asci
Typical Leptosphaeria (s.l.) spore bulge
Curious - a stretched ascus?
