I found these cup like guys on my woodland edge, anyone know it is?
They sure are neat looking.
Cute little things: Do the caps have gills on the underside?
Thanks for the reply Frog - unfortunately the wonderful leaf and its friends must have got blown away in the wind last night, b/c it was not on my porch today where I left it.
So unfortunately I am unable to give a answer and I do not recall whether it had gills or not.
I'm intrigued by the way the fungus is keeping parts of the leaf green!
I was thinking Mycena or Marasmius, but on photo #2 there is a slight side view of one of the fruiting bodies, which makes the cap look to be the top of a thick cylinder rather than the spindly cap/stem of the leaf litter Mycena/Marasmius I often see.
I'm hoping someone knows what this is, it is very distinctive and interesting!
Oh my...these are fabulous! Is there a way you can get a close-up of the 2nd image top left-side? One of them shows the underside a bit....and my comp isn't the greatest at enlargening the image.
I, too, like Frog, am fascinated with these! What kind of oak do you know?
It believe it came off my White Oak - Quercus alba.
I am glad others are so intrigued by these as well.
I have attached a forth pic that I took but did not put in the thread - don't think it shows the underside any better unfortunately.
Was on my art site when I found this posting....
Not sure if it's possibly the same thing?
