Description

K. Paxton reported tiny anamorphs in our burn-pile. I raised a board and revealed claw-like structures. We re-covered the pile. Now there are many more as shown in the context shot.
Photos 11-21 by @kallampero; photo # 18 is 400x, all others 1000x and in Melzer's.
Notes also from Danny:

"The spore measurements are as follows:

15.89 4.77
11.58 4.36
12.24 3.91

(11) 11.6 - 13.9 (15.9) × (3.6) 3.9 - 4.4 (4.9) µm
Q = (2.5) 2.7 - 3.2 (3.7) ; N = 50
Me = 12.7 × 4.3 µm ; Qe = 3

I would also add to this that the germ slit is spore length, straight to slightly curved, and that the spores appear to be biguttulate when fresh, and 1-guttulate when dried."

Sampled on 10/23/19.

First 4 pictures showing the mushrooms at time of sampling.
Other pictures of same group on same log, but various dates that are shown on photo details.
(trying to figure out if I can label each picture)

When young, the caps are glossy and wet and sticky.
