Photo deleted (split obsie)

It looks like Cully deleted the first photo (including the Crucibulum) and created a separate obsie with it, since we’ve had recent snows.

Nidularia, you say, John? Thanks for your comments!

Cool! Revisit may be warranted…

Looks like the obsie is recent and from campus, so maybe Cully can go back and resubmit two separate observations.

Yes, birdsnests.

The first image has some specimens of Crucibulum laeve, the rest being Nidularia deformis. I have seen this combination before, on a rotting pile of red pine branches.

That last image…

… is an agaric of some kind. If you remove that image I think the rest are Bird’s nest.
