      Alan Simpkins brought this along on Saturday (found on a leaf in his garden, I believe).

      Under stereomicroscope. Mature sporangia with orange capillitium/spores.

      Capillitium x 400

      Spores (10.5um) x 1000

      Spore photographed through an air bubble (acting as an additional lens) giving higher magnification and contrast. Reticulation on spore surface. Cropped.

      Great photographs and very convincing. I dont know if Alan lives near ancient woodland but it ticks all the other boxes.
