Image by Jason Hollinger.

Close-up of apothecium section in water at 400x showing anatomy of excluded exciple.

Ascospores in water at 400x. Note: look around because at least some spores should be 1-sepatte with the septum often not in the middle. Rarely some 3-septate spores present as well (supposedly, none seen in this specimen).
