Observed: 14th March 2013 By: leodufeuleodufeu’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

Deep bowls each approx 2 - 4cm diameter. Darker red inside than outside. Rim of bowl has lots of little 'tears' (tear meaning 'rip' rather than droplets of water from the eye!). 4 or 5 of these bowls growing on moss-covered fallen branch among leaf litter.
