here is another fungus that puzzles me a bit. I found it on a corticated Picea branch still attached to the tree. The asci are IKI-. I observed no sheath around the ascospores which become 1-septate and measure about 29–33.5 x 3-8–4.5 µm. The paraphyses have no remarkable content and are somewhat undulate.
Thanks again for your help!
My initial thought was a species I have never seen but would like to find, Therrya piceae. Funk noted that T. piceae could be misidentified as Tryblidiopsis pinastri when immature (although your ascomata look very different from Tryblidiopsis). Probably not this, but perhaps related especially because of the absence of gelatinous sheaths.
This looks interesting and would be great to culture and sequence.
Unfortunately I have the feeling that the material was already a bit senescent when I collected it, but it is now air-dried, so if you think it'd be worth an attempt to get it into culture please let me know to whom I should send it. :-)
I just moved to a new city a few days ago for a post-doc position, so I probably shouldn't accept this specimen even though it is very tempting. If Jason wants to study it that would be great, this species looks interesting!
