Interesting. It is not in Philips. My specimen does give the green colour of C. fulgens when scratched. The spores of the two species (next to each other in the Ascomycetes book) are extremely different.

The specimen is very shrunken so I must see what I can do.

Thanks, John.

I have enclosed the, much shrivelled, fruiting body in an airtight container, inverted over two coverslips. I hope it yields some spores. It the spores, if any, are of the Orange Peel, that will be final.

Apparently C. fulgens is being found all over the place this year.

I had a bit of a struggle to see anything but, under oil immersion, I have a seen lot of unclubbed, branched paryphases and I have seen 3 asci, in which the spores were spheroid, not elliptical, and not reticulated.

If you pass that back to your source they will realise that it is not Aleuria (Orange Peel) but is consistent with Caloscypha fulgens.

Thanks for your help.

Harold

Excellent work.

Worth reporting.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Most fungi are associated with the roots of trees. My book suggests that this species is associated with conifers. The nearest tree was a mature White/Grey Birch Betula populifolia. Another UK record this month, the one in Wales, also records it being found near a Birch (exact species not recorded).
