Hi Ian,

I am not overly familiar with cup fungi but B. citrina is often described as ranging from yellow to orange. Perhaps this observation is too orange for B.citrina, and may be one of the 18 other species of Bisporella (or even another related genera). I have seen photographs of B. cintrina this colour but there is no guarantee they were identified correctly. Cheers, Tim.

Comment on change of species name.

TimmiT, Hi and thanks for the update name nomination. I only have one query and that is with the colour of the body I have displayed. The recorded image and firstly named by DS is Yellow. This specimen was bright orange, (and colour corrected with a grey card when shot.) Maybe there are colour variations with this species. Because of its size (2-3mm)I had difficulty in getting the image to be as sharp as I would have preferred. Many thanks kk (post read. Thanks for the comment Tim.)
