Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
the soil or a tree, just wondered:)
There are distinct striations on the inside of the cup so C olla is unlikely.
Thanks, what great fungi, so not conforming to the rules, if fungi have any !
I looked at pictures of the Fluted Bird's nest and when they are young and closed up, they are rather furry. The ones I found were smooth before they opened up. Is there a another species this could be?
Thanks for your help guys!
The substrate was either soil or dung. The fungus was found on a Dahlia flower bed that had been fertilised by dung.
there is a dung loving "Birds Nest Fungus" Cyathus stercoreus. Very easy to confirm under the microscope. If you collected it I could do that for you.
Does look like it. Thanks for the offer of IDing it under the miscroscope but I'm afraid the mushrooms are gone now...
