Hello everyone. My first contribution to the forum!

Below is a description of a cup fungus looking like a Rutstroemia which I found on a dead ivy leaf but I'm not aware of any of this genus which occur on this substrate.



Rutsroemia on ivy leaf, Refail Fields, Pentraeth, N. Wales, 11/2/19

Asci: 80x7, 87x8, 90x8, 87x8, 89x8, 87x8.5, 78x7, 90x8,

Spores: 12.5x4, 2x3.5, 12x3.7, 12x4, 13x4.8, 12x3.5, 12.4x3.7, 12x3.9, 12x4.,

Paraohyses tips: 4, 3.3, 3.5, 4,

Excipulum textura globosa-cells thick walled. C 10 across.

FB 3 x 2mm. Cup-shaped. Hymenium bright yellow-brown. Excipulum paler, minutely furfuraceous. Stipe short-c0.5mm.

Re : Rustroemia on ivy leaf
Hi Charles, welcome to Ascofrance!
It is a Moellerodiscus, from the M. lentus complex. We found it also on ivy leaves in France and Spain. Asci seem to arise from croziers, do they?

Hi Charles

welcome to the forum!

Your fungus seems to be a Moellerodiscus, related to M. lentus. A difficult genus, not easy to give advice. It seems the asci arise from croziers, perhaps you can show this by a closeup on the ascus base? Did you test the ascus apex with iodine (Lugol)?

Re : Rustroemia on ivy leaf

Many thanks for this. I'm not familiar with Moellerodiscus. So it would be fair to call it Moellerodiscus lentus agg.? Will have a look at the asci in iodine.
