Paraphyses

I haven't come across Catillaria nigroclavata yet but the apothecia size of my specimen (to 1mm) and the lack of any brown, swollen tips on the paraphyses don't seem right.

More slices methinks!

Looks right to me

In your photograph 2 there appear to be paraphyses that match C. nigroclavata. I remain positive about this.
