Description

It reminds me of Durandiella fraxini.
I found it on the ground likely from Fraxinus. There are several dead trees next to it.
Teleomorph: Apothecia are very leathery and difficult to cut. Asci with crozier(+). Paraphyses tips are green under a microscope.
Asci
(84.5) 86.5 - 125.5 (128) × (10.7) 11 - 13.3 (14.3) µm
Q = (7.1) 7.3 - 11.4 (11.6) ; N = 8
Me = 109.3 × 12.1 µm ; Qe = 9.1
Ascospores
(22.3) 23.3 - 36.4 (36.8) × (2) 2.3 - 2.5 (2.8) µm
Q = (8.4) 9.6 - 15.5 (18.2) ; N = 6
Me = 30.4 × 2.4 µm ; Qe = 12.9

Anamorph: Conidia measure in H2O
(65.4) 67.8 - 72.2 (75) × (3.7) 3.8 - 4 (4.5) µm
Q = (15.3) 17.4 - 18.5 (19.3) ; N = 8
Me = 69.8 × 3.9 µm ; Qe = 17.7
Ascospores and conidia look very similar.
