Didymium nigripes
Overview
Sporocarps long-stalked, globose, total height 1.5 mm. Sporotheca umbilicate below, 0.3-0.5 mm diam., white. Hypothallus discoid, black. Stalk slender, dark brown to black, often slightly paler towards the top. Peridium membranous, grey-brown, mottled, thickly covered with white crystals. Columella subglobose, dark brown, calcareous. Capillitium delicate, of brown or colourless threads with a few thickened areas, little branched. Spore-mass dark brown. Spores pale violet-brown, 7-10 µm diam., verruculose with clusters of larger warts. Plasmodium grey or colourless. On leaf litter and dead herbaceous stems.
