Purply-brown blob: A postscript

Remember that purply-brown blob that fell off its log?

You probably thought that was the end of the story... But it isn't!

Because I picked up that purply-brown blob, put it in a little plastic box with some damp tissue paper, and popped it in the post to Nick Aplin of Sussex Fungus Group, who specialises in Ascomycetes.
Nick's confirmed that the purply-brown blob is indeed an example of Ascoryne sarcoides.

So there you go - the blob has a name.
