Interesting Ascomycetes (Pics)
    #1642872 - 06/18/03 06:57 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Found a bunch of these little guys growin' in the mulch bed outside my house today. Most of the specimens are not even a centimeter in diameter. The closest thing to them in my book is the Rufous Rubber Cup, or Galiella rufa. The margins are toothed, and the inside feels rubbery, like my book says it should. But the book doesn't have any pictures of or mention the little spore packet things inside the cups, so I'm not sure.

(By the way... Those things are not large, individual, seed-like spores, are they? I'm assuming they're packets with a ton of tiny spores inside them, right?)

Click here to see the pics. (I've already reached my upload limit for the day... Sorry!)

What do you guys think? Galiella rufa seem right?

Peace,

RebelSteve

Hehe, thanks...

The first time I saw anything like this was a picture of the "Bird's Nest Fungus" in my Botany book last semester.  I was excited to find something similar growing right in my own yard today! :laugh:

Sorry, they're not Galiella. Those are Splash Cups, Cyathus striatus, a very common type of Bird's Nest Fungus. They are certainly cool, though.

Nice photos!

Happy mushrooming!

i got to see a cool video of those in a general biology course. it showed the rain hitting them and the spores flying out in slow motion.

Woops!  :blush:

Thanks for the correction, ToxicMan!  You are right, these are Cyathus striatus!  I didn't even see them in my book when I looked at first b/c they're on the last page of plates.  I just automatically picked the first one that looked like what I found, which was obviously a mistake!

My book lists Cyathus striatus as the "Streaked Bird's Nest," though, not the Splash-Cup.  I guess the whole common name thing doesn't really matter, though.

Thanks again for the correct ID!
