Some amazing little Birds Nest Fungi (Cyathus stercoreus) growing on sugarcane mulch in my garden today. These "nests" are only about 6-7 mm in diameter, so are easily missed!

Yes-truly amazing. Such neat little fungi and beautifully captured.

This appeared in its usual spot under a Silver Birch.
Quite attractive from below, fairly ordinary from top, but nothing neat,symmetrical about it.

Thanks. I'll pass, but do appreciate there are ways of dealing with these.
Interesting that the farm they were on the wife was European and she showed me fungi she had prepared for eating.
I declined. Her other offerings were delectable.

I thought it was cool finding growth on top of the destruction from a brush fire.

The lighting is really good on that bird's nest fungus. Diffused flash?

That's really unusual. It is meant to have world wide distribution so I'll have to search dung piles more carefully!!!

Actually I was referring to the first post Cyathus stercoreus (external link)

Being coprophilous, C. stercoreus grows on dung, in soil with dung, and bonfire sites; it has also been recorded growing on sand dunes

But yes the second post Cyathus striatus (external link) grown on twigs.

Cyathus striatus is a saprobic fungus, deriving its nutrition from decaying organic material, and is typically found growing in clusters on small twigs or other woody debris. It is also common on mulch under shrubs

I must say it looks hard to differentiate the two.
