Observation 52370: Crucibulum laeve (Huds.) Kambly

When: 2010-09-08

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

These were seen in two different locations, one in Zone 34 and one in D1C. They were only noticed because they were growing near larger mushrooms that drew my attention.

Indeed, the first time I saw this species, in Zone 47, I stumbled onto it while checking out a Pycnoporus cinnabarinus specimen. It seems these tiny brown things are difficult to discover any other way than something else interesting (and quite a bit bigger) is next to them and you crouch for a closer look, or else you’ve seen C. laeve itself there before and look for it again next year.

Both photos here have only unopened C. laeve. An opening one and closeups can be seen in observation 52127, from a few days ago in Zone 47. The unopened ones in that observation and in this one look the same.
