When: 2015-02-27
Herbarium specimen reported

Notes: This striking, monotypic ascomycete almost resembles the offspring of a Phillipsia and a Favolaschia. First described as Peziza edulis by Spegazzini in 1891, it is known only from a narrow latitudinal belt spanning three distinct phytogeographical regions in central South America.

Habitat: Atlantic Paranaense forest

Substrate: on moderately- to well-decomposed, corticate and decorticate wood (though originating from beneath the cortex).

Collector: Vicky Vignale

Collection #: CIAR017

Collected during the 2015 “Curso de Identificación de Macrohongos Degradadores de Madera,” lead by Dr. Gerardo Robledo, Dr. Elisandro Ricardo Drechsler-Santos, Dr. Orlando Fabián Popoff Montañez and Nicolás Niveiro.
