Barbeyella minutissima
Overview
Sporocarps scattered, total height 0.2-0.25(-0.4) mm. Sporotheca purple-brown or blackish, ± globose, flattened at the base, c. 0.1-0.13 (-0.2) mm diam. Stalk c. 66% of total height, reddish brown and transparent at the base, black and opaque at the apex, tubular, stuffed near the base with refuse matter, tapered upwards. Hypothallus absent. Peridium thick, dull to slightly iridescent, covered on both surfaces with refuse matter, divided into 5-9 distinct, angular platelets, firmly attached to the apices of the capillitium. Dehiscence along preformed lines, the platelets margins with irregular blunt spines c. 2 µm high. Columella tapered, up to c. 33% the height of the sporotheca. Capillitium consisting of 6-10 primary branches arising from the columella apex, threads simple, occasionally reddish brown, once-branched, the tips firmly attached to the peridium by flared, funnel-shaped expansions. Spore-mass purple-brown. Spores smoky brown, distinctly warted, 8-10 µm diam. On leafy liverworts.
