I didn’t think of that. Always assumed it was some fluted, floraly, Sarcoscypha like thing, but then again, I was neither collector nor photographer, nor have I ever laid eyes on anything but this fuzzy low rez photo, which doesn’t have enough detail to reliably confirm or deny anything. Maybe Larry can comment…

for this observation should be restricted to the cup fungus on the left. That’s not at all to say that commentary shouldn’t continue on the topic of both fungi pictured, but this way only one name will (hopefully) be assigned to the observation. Besides, I find the cup to be the more interesting of the two.

No, I didn’t claim this to be a tulip

I just compared this unknown fungus with this plant because of its form:)

I wasn’t there for this shot in particular, but that “tulip” is in the shot because it’s a mushroom. what makes you say it’s a tulip?

This ramarioid fungi most probably are

Clavicorona or Artomyces sp. This tulip-flower I don’t know too.

Two Species Here

Unsure on both, but despite my first guess, the coraloid guy to the right looks too thin and flimsy to be Ramaria. I know I’ve seen several fungi which are radically branched but lack the heft of typical corals, but can’t seem to remember the genus. The cup on the left is a complete mystery.
