Observation 44767: “Discomycetes” Sacc.

I was unable to find this species in any of the Australian references, however, Clive Shirley (Forest Fungi) shows an image by this name that is local to NZ that is a close match. (closer than Cookeina tricholoma){B. Fuhrer}
The caps were between 10-15mm across, and jelly like in makeup.

Danny, You are correct. Size should have been “mm”
Have change nominated name. Thanks for your continuous assistance. The last two years have been very poor sesons for fungi. Extremes in the weather I guess is the main reason.

I take it that by 10-15cm you mean 10-15mm, yes? I’ve not seen or heard of a pigmentless C. colensoi. I’m wondering if they’re even Cookeina at all. Do you still have these?

Beautiful little cups!
