Abstract

The range of this species, as given by Seaver (N. A. Flora 3: 42. 1910), is "New York to Virginia." A small but adequate collection, growing on soil in woods near Iowa City, is referred to it with some hesitation. The perithecia are more protrudant than the description seems to imply, but the globose base is immersed in the subiculum. Otherwise it is in agreement and it is certainly distinct from any of our other species. Unlike other species of the genus, H. apiculatus is not associated with the remains of other fungi, a circumstance which led to its original assignment to Hypocrea. The spores are of the typical Hypomyces type, fusiform, apiculate, 2-celled, rough and 26-28 x 6-7 µ. The color of our specimen is now a rather pale, dull brown.
