Mollisia on wood
Zuzana Sochorová (Egertová), 07-09-2021 20:35
Zuzana Sochorová (Egertová)Mollisia
please, how would you determine this Mollisia?
- on deciduous wood (Salix and Alnus are the most common trees in the locality)
- asci IKI bb, 8-spored, arising from croziers, 71-92 x 6-7.6 µm
- ascospores (7.3)8.4–10.1(10.9) × (2.3)2.5–2.9(3.1) µm, Q = (2.6)3–3.6 (4), Me = 9.1 × 2.7 µm; Qe = 3.3
- aseptate, OCI = 1-1.5
- KOH reaction negative
- subhymenium consisting of hyaline hyphae
- marginal cells about 15-20 µm long

In the key by Andreas Gminder, my first problem appears at the point 25. Cells of the ectal excipulum are not brown only at the base, but also not "up to the margin" - the most marginal cells are hyaline.
If chosing „brownish only at the base", the best fitting is M. benesuada.
If chosing „brownish up to the margin", I cannot decide again whether to choose „oil content 0(+)" or „oil content ca 2" (I would say my specimen has oil content between 1 and 1.5). If following OCl = 0, the best choice is M. cinerea. But the spores in my fungus definitely aren´t missing oil...
If jumping on „oil content 2", I cannot choose anything which would fit well.
Thanks, Zuzana

Re : Mollisia on wood
Yes, I would also exclude M. cinerea. The excipulum is bright brown up to the mid flanks. M. benesuada is a species on bark ("alni-corticis"), I earlier misused the name for a common species complex on wood, namely M. oblonga (olivaceocinerea s. Gminder) and M. nodosa. The two differ in their anamorphs. I am sure this could be brought out with ITS.

Re : Mollisia on wood
Hi Zotto,
thank you for your answer.
The excipulum had a green tinge after applying 5% KOH (the green colour is mentioned in the key in M. olivaceocinerea with NH4OH).
Best, Zuzana
