Holwaya mucida (Schulzer) Korf & Abawi (1971) (Fungi, Ascomycota, Ascomycetes, Leotiomycetidae, Helotiales, Helotiaceae). Height approximately 3-4mm. Wet forest, Ozhigovo station (ca. 55km SW of Moscow).

A stipitate, mostly fasciculate, rather tough, black, inoperculate discomycete on hardwood (in that case it was a dead lime tree), with ą cylindrical, multi-septate spores and a conspicuous, match-shaped anamorph (imperfect stage, known as Crinula caliciiformis Fr. (1821), that's what we see here).

Hi Dmitry,
Very interesting capture.
you have a very shallow DOF even when using f/22 - must be due to the small subject. I would considering cropping the lower part of the image that is not so interesting.
The fungus is very interesting, first time I see such a thing !

I like very much to look at your strange species.
This one is not an exception. Great long exposure showing excellent details on the blacks. DOF a bit short this time. TFS, Felipe.
