Rosellinia Sp

From Jeremy

I narrowed it down to R. britannica and R. corticium, based on stromal diameter > 1mm, structure at base not stellate, larger spore size (21 - 27 x 7 - 9um), apical apparatus reaching 7um or more in length, minutely papillate ostioles, full length pore split. 

I thought I could see a slimy sheath around the spore (making it R. corticium) but looked at more slides and decided this was just a bit of squashed ascus and that the slime is just at the ends of the spores. This makes it
Rosellinia britannica. It tends to be found on Ash and Ivy. There are a handful of records in Norfolk and I found it at Colitishall earlier this year on Ivy. (There no Norfolk records for R. corticium, though it occurs in Britain.)
