Maybe Mycelium (Need ID)

Post by Adrian »


found this afew weeks ago in my fungi hunting area's close by to some fungus, its very small, approximately 3mm, shape is very much like a crator, studying it closer it looked like maybe it could be composed out of strands of mycelium.

heres a photograph, macro lens set at highest magnification 1x life, im hoping maybe someone here would know?

It sure does look like some kind of fruiting body of some sort. No way would I be able to give you an ID. Cup shaped structures are very common in fungi and lichens. I know I am late in posting a reply to this post but if you can, the best thing to do is observe it over a period of days and see what developes :wink:
