Observation 46698: Dasyscyphus bicolor (Bull.) Fuckel

When: 2010-06-07

Collection location: Bassetts, Sierra Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Douglas Smith (douglas)

No specimen available

Found under mixed conifer forest.

Found by others in the spring fungi of the Sierras course.

Brough in by Parathi, and they were all dry, and just a bunch of tiny fuzzy white dots on the branch. I told her to wrap it in a paper towel, a pore water on it, and leave it for an hour. Which we did. And then when unwrapped, there they were, the small yellow discs. At first I couldn’t tell if it was an asco or a slime mold, but they revived quite nicely.
