Notes: These are abundant on last-year’s Rubus parviflora canes throughout our birch forests.

if there is any mycologist who is working with Dasyscyphus in America at all …
no one is known to me!
And I confess I was specifically looking for them. There are often a number of minute cup-fungi on leaves, twigs and last-year’s stems of various herbs this time of year during light rains. (They shrivel up to nothing when they dry out.)
You’re right, Gerhard, D. mollissimus does look like a pretty good match. (D. sulfureus has much longer spores, mine are only 12 µm long.) But the diagram in Fungi of Switzerland doesn’t show the conspicuous golden oil drops on the paraphyses. Also it claims the substrate is “dead stems of Apiaceae and other herbs” — would last year’s Rubus parviflora canes be considered an herb for these purposes? I wonder who’s doing work on these sorts of things in North America? I actually have access to literature where I am currently.
and spores as well as hairs point to Dasyscyphus sulphureus or Dasyscyphus mollissimus but we speak of American mushrooms here:)
