Hymenoscyphus vernus?
Juuso Äikäs, 22-05-2020 17:45
Yesterday I was searching for fungi from the bottom of a small forest stream. I stumbled upon these, growing from thin hardwood branches.

The asci seemed to be without croziers. I got almost no reaction with Melzer's but with Lugol's there was a fairly clear blue reaction with the apical pore. 

Spore measurements:  (7.6) 8.3 - 12.2 (13.3) × (3.4) 3.5 - 4.3 (4.4) µm
Q = (2) 2.3 - 3.1 (3.5) ; N = 16
Me = 10.3 × 3.8 µm ; Qe = 2.7

So does this fit H. vernus or might this be something else? I've found Cudoniella clavus before in the same stream last summer but I think this is something different. That finding had croziers and the stems were brown towards the base.

Re : Hymenoscyphus vernus?
Yes, this is a good fit. A dark base is typical for H. vernus, not sure if it occurs also in C. clavus. Genetically the two species are surely congeneric, but the absence of croziers and the narrower, more cylindrical spores are typical of H. vernus.

Re : Hymenoscyphus vernus?
Ok, many thanks! I looked at a couple ascocarps with 20X magnification and the base of the stem was blackish. The C. clavus that I've found had more a medium brown than a blackish base.

This is exactly the current case.
