Have stayed with Ascocoryne sarcoides as is not very cup-shaped like A cylichniun.Only a small cluster in moss on fallen Beech tree.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Sounds as though your expertise in these Ascomycetes is building which is very useful as I am rather poor on them. It might be an idea to glance back at a few of the older fungi observations to see if you spot any that might be in need of more attention, I have been particularly having trouble with Gyromitra recently. They are a fairly important group as some are poisonous and can be confused with good edible species that people like collecting.
I have been photographing all the ones I see at all stages and have started to also use a microscope.I am still never sure as they vary greatly when immature but will perceiver with them as I find them interesting.
Thats great to hear. Don't worry if you still make some mistakes with ID as even with microscope and the detailed keys using spores and other microscopic characters sometime they still don't turn out as they should. Its a matter of getting to know them then the small characters become easier to use. Also keep an eye out for courses or forays where there is an Asco expert as these can be a big help too (but may be rather tricky to find).
There is no need to apologise it is all about learning and understanding what to look for in future observations.
