Observation 190783: Crucibulum laeve (Huds.) Kambly

This fungus was found growing on a dead log next to moss, and it was located under a shaded area with dead leaves and plant foliage. There was another type of shelf fungus growing right next to it on a piece of bark.

It had no distinct smell to it.

This fungus was shaped like a cup, and there seemed to be tiny creamy egg shaped balls on the very bottom of the cup. The cup itself had a yellowish brown tint to it.

No spore print was obtained for this fungus, but the spores themselves were shaped like smooth ovals. Their spore shape ranged from 6.0-8.0 × 2.4-4.0 micrometers.
