Remarks (internal):Peziza succosa has strongly amyloid asci, with the bluing reaction strongest at the apex, although no pronounced bluing ring is present. With other ectomycorrhizal fungi, P. succosa has been reported in deciduous forests and is widespread in Europe, North America (Hansen et al. 2001, Michell 2006), and Asia (DH Pfister, pers. comm.). ITS sequence analyses of our collection showed it to be 99% identical with P. succosa (DQ200840.1) from Fredericksburg Have, Zealand, Denmark
