provides a working key to cyphelloid genera. micro required.

not only may “Discomycetes”

not apply here (potentially), but to any other observation of an unknown “discoid” thing elsewhere on the site. that would make microscopy something of a prerequisite just to get to phylum in some cases. the more I look around at things cavalierly thrown onto the “Discomycetes” pile, the more I wonder how many are, in fact, cyphelloid fungi.

are you able to scope this?

by Björn Wergen and he is sure that it’s not a discomycete. He suggested these names and tend to P. pallidus. I tend to Flagelloscypha. Any other idea? Choose another general name for this, if you want.
