Observation 20698: Urnula craterium (Schwein.) Fr.
When: 2009-04-29
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found these where the Morels grow. i have seen some big clusters growing on hard wood sticks and downed branches. I once sampled some as a culinary curiosity. They have good flavor but are a bit tough. I had no ill effect but i only ate three of them.

Hi Eddee. Please send any Urnula that you find. We need as many as possible to extract a useful chemical. You can just air dry them and send to:
