| p.1 #6 · p.1 #6 · Spring Orange Peel fungus Caloscypha fulgens (title edited) |
It has been suggested to me that this is Caloscypha fulgens, quite a rarity and recorded in Wales for the first time earlier this month. The dark colouration, rather than being a sign of senescence, is evidence for it being this species, together with the season being more appropriate.
I am trying to collect spores overnight, as those of the two species are very different.
I have now seen enough microscopic detail, together with the underside turning green when rubbed, to confirm this and I have changed the topic title accordingly.
