?Tricharina on old burn site
Zuidland Peter, 18-10-2022 01:37
I need help with this one please.
Vast numbers of this asco found on 2-3 year old burnt ground in a eucalyptus forest; stipitate when small, flattening with age up to 1cm with a fringe of hairs.
Spores are smooth, 23-24 x 13-15um, encased by a warted membrane when immature.
Asci are Lugol's -ve and have a simple base.
Hairs are hyaline at the top, purple/brown at the base, septate with walls approx 2um

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Hi Peter, very interesting collection! No idea. None of the known Tricharina species - maybe a  Pseudotricharina? I don't know. Sequencing is necessary. If you like, you can send me a part of it and I will do it.
Best, Uwe

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
My first idea was a Geopyxis, but the spore size is unusual.
Why not a Pseudombrophila?

A close-up view of ascus base should be interesting.

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Yes, good idea! But as far as I know, there are no Pseudombrophila with such ascospores.

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Bonjour et bonne soirée,

dans le cas des ascospores, un épaississement visible peut être observé aux pôles. Est-ce peut-être une caractéristique déterminante ?

Un bon moment

Zuidland Peter, 18-10-2022 22:08
Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Thanks you for looking at this, I will check out Pseudotricharina.
Zuidland Peter, 18-10-2022 22:12
Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Geopyxis was my first thought too as it was on this site soon after the burn, I will look into Pseudombrophila and send a better image of the asci base.
I am unable to access Otto's database 'In vivo veritas', is it no longer available?
Zuidland Peter, 18-10-2022 22:16
Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Thanks you Ursula for your observation, many of the mature spores also show a tapering at the poles of the spores too, I am not aware of the diagnostic value here as yet.
Zuidland Peter, 18-10-2022 22:40
Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Uwe, I will collect some fresh specimens to dry and send you some; I will let you know when it is on it's way to you.

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Bonjour et bonne journée Peter,

vous montrez principalement des ascospores dans la section optique (optischer Schnitt). On ne peut pas juger si les éperons sont ou sont sans ornement.
Si les spores sont ornées, ce serait bien si vous pouviez les montrer au microscope dans l'eau.

Un bon moment

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site

I haven't seen any ornamentation on the spores themselves only on the sheath surrounding them.

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Hello and good day,

Peter sent me a receipt. Microscoped and documented the Asco find. Was able to add some microscopic features to Peter's post. Here my results.

Very strong hair growth on the outside of the fruit body, especially on the edge, can be seen on the exsiccate. Hairiness down to the stem area. Compare it to a felted fabric. Page 2 - 3

Hyaline, smooth, thick-walled, partly in gel shell, 22.5 - 25.5 x 13.5 - 15.5 µm Q 1.7 - Page 4

Germinating spores – conidia:
Germinating spores with pinched conidia, conidia 11 – 13.5 x 2.5 – 4µm – Page 5

Expanded above, up to 7µm, brown pigmented, partly hairy – Page 6

Eight spores, 280-320 x 18-21µm, base without hook, J-

Fabric layer:
Textura angularis, very compact, cells 10 - 30 µm, hyphae of the texture up to 3 µm - Page 7

Outer area of the fruit body and edge very densely covered with hair. Hairs hyaline to beige, up to 6 µm thick, walls 1.5 - 2 µm thick. Hair on the outside 160 - 270 µm long.
It was observed that the hair in some areas, especially in the edge area of the fruit bodies, was heavily covered with gel. Pages 8, 10 - 14

Attached is a 14-page documentation of the find. Unfortunately I am not able to identify the find. I would particularly like to point out the gel-coated spores, the heavily gel-coated hairs and the very compact layer of tissue. I moved away from my first thoughts about Geopyxis because of the strong hair on the outside.
I give the Asco the working title Pseudombrophila.

A good time

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Hi Ursula (and Peter),
beautiful documentation! Now I am sure that it is indeed a Pseudombrophila.
Best, Uwe

Re : ?Tricharina on old burn site
Beautiful work Ursula, a great presentation.

I thank you and Uwe for answering on this one.

Hallo und guten Tag Peter,

Wäre schön von dir zu lesen.

Eine gute Zeit und bleib gesund
