Metatrichia vesparia
Overview
Sporocarps sessile or stalked, densely crowded when sessile, in groups of up to 12, sharing united stalks when stipitate, up to 2.5 mm total height. Sporothecae sub-cylindrical, conical to subovate, 0.4-0.7 mm diam., dark red, reddish-purple to nearly black, shiny or iridescent. Hypothallus red, merging with the stalk. Peridium of 2(-3) layers, the outer layer cartilaginous, the inner layer membranous, usually dehiscing by a preformed lid. Capillitium red, consisting of a few very long coiled tubules, 5-6 Ám diam., with 3-5 spirals and spines up to 4 Ám long. Spore-mass rust-red or scarlet. Spores pale orange-red, 9-10 Ám diam., verrucose and bordered in optical section. Plasmodium dark red or black.
