Hardcastle Crags 11.03.2014

Here are my few finds whilst walking Basil on a sunny spring like afternoon.


Nectria coccinea on Beech (Fagus sylvatica).


Asci 8-spored, no reaction to the tips when mounted in iodine.


Spores 12-14 x 5-6. Pale brown, verruculose, with one septum and slightly constricted - mounted in H2O.


Heteromycophaga glandulosae on Exidia glandulosa attached to a fallen dead branch of Quercus. sp


Tear Dropper (Cylindrobasidium laeve) on a fallen dead Pinus sylvestris log.


Spores 8.2 - 11.5 x 5-6. Drop/tear shaped smooth hyaline with granular contents.


Scarlet Elfcup (Sarcoscypha austriaca). I'm only going to add micrographs if I find the Ruby Elfcup (Sarcoscypha coccinea) in Calderdale as I do not want to keep showing the same evidence over and over again.
