Observation 119582: Sarcoscypha austriaca var. lutea Ruini & Ruedl

When: 2012-12-10

Collection location: Knathole wood, new mills, Derbyshire, England [Click for map]

Who: lipase

Specimen available

This observation is for the orange fungus only. I have pictured them next to the red ones just for colour comparison.

There was a pile of sticks all about 2" diameter with lots of the red ones on and then a single stick in the middle with just orange ones on…

Would a picture of one of the sticks be useful for attempting an ID of the species of the substrate?

Sarcoscypha coccinea var. aurantiaca? Sarcoscypha dudleyi?
