Description

Bluing quickly.

Seems closest to X. mendocinensis, however I don't see any truncate spores, and the spore size is a bit small for that species. I was also curious about the red edge of the cap which is not part of the description. Spores measure 9-11x4-5. Measurements taken with oil lens at 1000x from both fruit body and from spore print with same results. Western Xerocomellus key (Frank 2020) lists spores for X. mendocinensis at (9.7)11.7-15.1(16.7) x 4.3-5.4 (5.8).

Trees in the area were maple, Doug fir and hazel (Corylus cornuta).

Spores 7.5-8.5 x 2.5-3 microns. I am having trouble telling if they are weakly amyloid or not. Update: Brunnipila calyculiformis suggested by Björn Wergen via FB group Ascomycetes of the World.

Description

Found in an area with mostly Abies and Tsuga heterophylla. About 20 ft from a stream, moist but not in flowing water. We found two collections looking exactly like this in separate locations in the area. Someone on Facebook suggested Vibrissea piceicola nom prov. I am trying to get more information to compare to that species. The color and shape does not appear to be the same as V. truncorum. Here is a listing https://www.nahuby.sk/obrazok_detail.php?obrazok_id=622606&poradie=6&form_hash=gallery Here are some pics from H.-O. Baral gdrive https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B5SeyOEkxxZhdnVlckhrSDhNc3M?usp=sharing

Micro photos show asci (one measured at 280 microns), paraphyses (filiform, clavate tips, ~7 septate), spores. All parts inamyloid. Spores are threadlike, about 1 micron wide and very long, (143) 200-235 microns, although they are somewhat difficult to measure because many of them are curved. Updated 6/19 with stereo scope photo of stipe showing some hairiness, although only white.

Description

Almost exclusively Doug fir in the area. Spores 32.5-36.25 x 31.25-32.5 microns. These larger spores indicate it is probably not G. harknessii (24-28 x 22-27 per Ascomycete Fungi of North America) but perhaps G. gardneri, although that species has spores with warts that are supposed to dissolve in KOH and they did not (the KOH used was fairly old, I don't know if that matters).

On Helvella cupuliformis (see previous observation) which was gregarious in the area. Aleuriospores 12.5-21.25 microns (mostly around 17.5), a little larger than listed in Ascomycete Fungi of North America (it says 13.5-17.5).

Description

Spores broadly elliptic (which rules out my original guess of H. macropus), 17.5-20.5 x 12.5 microns, which makes them a slightly better match than H. fibrosa. Ascomycetes of North America lists H. fibrosa at 16-20 x 10-12, H. cupuliformis as 18-21 x 11.5-13.5.
