Echria macrotheca?

Good evening everyone,

On dung of sheep I recently found perithecia of about 650x500µ with tufts of agglutinated and septated brown hairs.

The asci were long-stipitate, 230x45µ and 8-spored.

I could only find a few spores outside the asci. They all had a gelatinous sheath that was slightly fringed and measured about 45x24µ

Following Nordic Sordariaceae, Lundqvist I came to Arnium macrotheca, now Echria.

Hi Marc,
my mushroom friend Sven has found this species last year in cow dung. I could also examine the test and confirm the finding also. Perhaps Sven announces himself, he has of it a good documentation.
Greetings Peter.

Many thanks Michel and Peter.

I had doubts about it because the fringes on the sheath were not very obvious.

As Peter and Michel said, this is clearly Echria macrotheca.
I've found it only few times. Surely a rare species!

We discussed it at sometimes.
If you want to compare, look here
or there
