Observation 10609: Peziza Dill. ex Fr.

When: 2008-08-07

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These cups were folded back on themselves and crumpled, and had little holes. Found in pine litter near the bases of pine trees. One was found near some small orange mushrooms.

One image shows the end of my right shoe — that one was aimed straight down and shows that the cup curves and wrinkles completely over itself, as well as indicating its size (3 cm or so). Another shows one at the base of a young pine tree.

These were scattered in a small area near where I’d also seen chanterelles and hygrophori, and they were gone less than a week later, on the 12th of August.

(I visit these particular woods often, sometimes twice in one week, as they’re conveniently nearby, less than an hour away, and unlike the similarly close by Algonquin Park don’t require I pay admission to go hiking in them!)
