Description

Extensive fruiting of stalked sporangia 1.4-1.9 mm tall. Sporotheca very dark; stalk longitudinally grooved, red, shiny; Peridium dark, splitting into petaloid lobes. Capillitium rusty red in mass, red by transmtted light, unbranched with smooth spiral bands and gradually tapering ends, 4-5 microns diameter. Spores rusy red in mass, orange red by transmitted light, minutely spiny, 10 microns diameter.

Description

Widely scattered tufts (between 3 and many sporangia) of stalked sporangia to 6 mm high, pale lilac brown. Sporotheca sub-cylindrical, slightly tapering at apex; rounded at apex and base, 2.7 mm long x 0.3–0.4 mm diameter. Stalk black, shiny, 0.4–1.5 mm long; black and with reticulate fibers at base when viewed by transmitted light. Hypothallus continuous under groups, membranous, brown and shiny. Peridium fugacious. Columella reaches to below apex of sporotheca where it branches. Capillitium attached to entire length of columella, about 5 meshes across radius, reddish brown; surface net angular with numerous free ends. Spores pale lilac brown in mass, pale by transmitted light, reticulate pattern of faint large meshes between small dark meshes, 6–7 µm.
Note: colour and size makes this a distinctive species in the field. This collection has numerous free ends on the surface net in contrast to another of my collections which has no fee ends. (N.E. Nannenga-Bremekamp states that ‘meshes sometimes almost smooth, sometimes with thorns’.) The reticulate pattern on the spores is distinctive.

Description

Pseudoaethalium dark brown when mature covered in dried white slime, 70 mm long x 90 mm wide x 10 mm high. Sporothecae closely packed, sinuous, with convex tips, 0.4–0.6 mm diameter. Hypothallus white at first becoming reddish brown. Peridium light brown in reflected light with golden and blue iridescence; circular patterns seen with oil immersion lens. Spores light brown in mass, pale by transmitted light, banded-reticulate, 6 µm.
Notes Immature pseudoaethalium first orange, then coral red then chocolate brown.

Description

Pseudoaethalia of closely packed sporothecae, more or less round in outline, 12 mm long x 15 mm wide x 4 mm high, brown. Sporothecae cylindrical straight-sided tubules, angular by mutual pressure. Tips of sporothecae 0.5–0.6 mm diameter, hexagonal, flat to slightly convex, equal in height so forming a smooth surface of the pseudoaethalium. Hypothallus inconspicuous. Peridium brown, slightly iridescent, circular pattern seen with oil immersion lens. Spores reddish brown in mass, brown by transmitted light, banded reticulate, 6 µm. Immature pseudoaethalia were pale pinkish brown.

Description

Hemispherical pseudoaethalia of bouquet-shaped of sporothecae, 4.5 mm diameter x 3 mm high. Sporotheca cylindrical, 2.7 mm long, 0.7 mm diameter at apex, 0.5 mm at base, with convex ‘lid’ that separates from walls of peridium. Hypothallus membranous, reddish brown. Peridium membranous, light brown in reflected light, shiny; tips of sporothecae slightly different (thinner?) than the rest of the peridium, iridescent with golden, blue and purplish hues. Inner surface of peridium is ornamented with wavy folds visible with 1000x oil immersion lens. Spores sandy brown in mass, yellow brown by transmitted light, banded reticulate over most of the surface, 7.3–10.5 µm.

Description

Scattered small groups of stalked sporangia to 2.5 mm tall. Sporotheca obovate, 0.7–1 mm diameter, at first pale brown with faint lines of dehiscence, then dark brown before drying to chestnut brown. Stalk 1.5 mm, longitudinally furrowed, dark brown. Hypothallus thick, brown and yellow, furrowed like an extension of the stalk. Peridium double, the outer layer thick, with absorbed particles; inner layer has a geometric pattern.
Elaters unbranched, 5 µm wide with smooth spirals, tapering to a long point. Spores (and elaters) dull yellow in mass, colourless by transmitted light, minutely spiny, 10–11 µm.

Description

Gregarious stalked sporangia 1.5-1.7 mm tall. Sporotheca globose, brown, 0.3-0.6 mm diameter. Stalk subulate, black 1.2-1.4 mm long with fibrous base (see in transmitted light). Peridium fugacious. Columella short, divides just above stalk apex into several branches that give rise to the capillitium. Spores brown in mass, light brown by transmitted light with lighter germination area, minutely warted, 9 microns.

Description

Young, bright orange short-stalked fruiting bodies were scattered along a decaying Pomaderris apetala log. Over days their colour darkened but they
lightened to ochraceous as the spores and capillitium dried out.
Dehiscence circumscissile leaving a calyculus.
