Observed: 12th March 2011 By: tomdadom

Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

Species interactions

No interactions present.

Plant ???

Hmmm, this observation seems to be included under plants, rather than fungi and lichens.

In my notes above I left out a couple of key words, it should read:
"disc-like, corticate (with a distinct skin) granules within the cups"

Recent work in the Netherlands shows that many records of C. pyxidata actually refer to C. pocillum - a belief that the basal granules of the latter are always appressed to the ground has led to numerous misidentifications. Not everyone agrees with this, but I find the Dutch work clarifies this difficult group very well here in Britain.

If possible

It would be best if this could be put in fungi and lichens section,all you have to do is edit it,

Thank's for the information on the ID I just put Cladonia sp as I am not an expert in this field.
