Crocicreas cyathoideum?
Anna Klos, 18-05-2024 10:47

We found this tiny ascomycete (max. 1mm) on a stem (of grass?).
Is this Crocicreas cyathoideum?
I'm not sure because of the length of the spores, they easily reach to 14 mu.

With kind regards,

Re : Crocicreas cyathoideum?
Oh, this looks interesting. A few days before we had it here: Cyathicula paludosa. 

The row of large guttules in the spores are typical. Crocicreas is from its type something else, so Cyathicula is used for C. cyathoideum etc.

I fear you have not observed whether the asci arise from croziers or not, because there exist two variants in C. paludosa.

Re : Crocicreas cyathoideum? => no Cyathicula paludosa
Thank you Hans-Otto and Riet!

I know that names have changed, however in our (Dutch) database (the Verspreidingsaltas), they still use the old names. They will be changed, when I don't know.

I'm terrrible with croziers, however I tried to make some pictures for you, Otto.
Not easy, you did say the species is tough.
Don't know if this are croziers, hopefully you can tell me.

Re : Crocicreas cyathoideum?
Yes, it is without croziers, obviously (from your 2nd pic).

Since I will soon study the type and want to clarify the ascus base there, I would be happy if you could send me collection data, best with WGS84 coordinates.

Not sure but monocot stems usually look a bit different from dicots. The fragment has no nodium?

Re : Crocicreas cyathoideum?

The coordinates are : 52° 6? NB, 5° 11? OL

I did get the specimen from somebody else, she could not tell me where it was on.

Re : Crocicreas cyathoideum?
The coordinates need at least 3 digits after the comma. Otherwise it is +/- 1 km.

The collector name I should know to correctly address the find.

GPS 52.0896, 5.1893
RDS 141438 455719

I was a guest, so I don't know the names of the other persons who where there.
Because I was willing to do the microscopy, they gave the specimens to me.

Thanks! This will be 1 km ENE of Utrecht Science Park, 4 m alt.

Yes, that's right and you're welcome!
