RD00699

Aug 5, 2023. Burden Lake Rec Site, BC, Canada

Cribraria microcarpa or C. stellifera. C. stellifera appears to be the better fit based on the multiple free ends on the peridial nodes.

Growing in mixed boreal forest on dead softwood (likely Populus).

Sporocarps 1.9mm tall, with stalk 1.7mm (stalk 8.5x height of sporotheca) and sporothecal 0.3mm wide x 0.2mm high.

Stalk long, tapered with longitudinal furrows, granules 1.6-2.4um and pale with dark red center.

Peridium reduce to tiny cup (0.05mm wide, with teeth 0.03mm long) with about 10 small granule filled teeth.

Peridial net regular, branched with multiple free ends, with large round to oblong granule (dark red, 1.4-1.7um dia) filled nodes (up to 25um long).

Spores pale, 6.4-8.1um, fine warts with a few larger warts.

Substrate: bark of living Bedfordia salicina. Description: several scattered pseudoaethalia, pinkish brown, 2 mm diameter. Hypothallus: membranous, pinkish brown. Peridium: fugacious, reddish brown. Capillitium: tubular, simple, looped, scantily branched, some swellings and swollen free ends. Spores in clusters of 3–8, warted, especially on outer surface, 10 µm. Notes: One collection only. (Mine has been eaten and only the hypothallus remains.)
This species is in a list of myxomycete taxa with clustered spores; considered rare (i.e. known only from 2–20 collections. (Schnittler & Mitchell 2000 ‘Species diversity in Myxomycetes based on morphological species concept.’ Stapfia 73: 55–62.)

Sporocarps formed on a small bryophyte-covered stump north of big tree. This is the first record of the species on this stump. The fruiting bodies didn't mature properly, possibly because of the weather and I collected them too early.
The blebs appeared on leafy liverwort (probably Bazzania), which is unusual as they seem to prefer mosses and shun liverworts.

These are blebs of a slime mould I have been calling Lamproderma 'umbilicatum'. They are forming on a small stump north of 'big tree' stump.
The mature sporocarps superficially resemble Lamproderma, but the capillitium is more akin to Didymiaceae.
It is a new genus, and is currently being described.

Edit: 2/18 Below are corresponding observations of the same log (in two pieces) that recently fell, over a period of days to see the development and changes of this in hopes to get a better chance of knowing what it is. I didn’t/don’t know if it is/was the same organism in different stages or not, but now I assume so. Today it looks as it is mature and sporing.
