When: 2011-05-22

Collection location: Fairfield Co., Connecticut, USA [Click for map]

Who: Bill Bynum (bynumbill)

Specimen available

Small eyelash cups on acorn caps. These were collected at the 5/22/2011 Ct Mycological Society Foray. Several experienced folks did not have an ID for it.

The acorn caps in photo are appx 5/8" dam.

The largest cup is appx 1/8".

I dampened the fungi a little for the photos as it had dried out after being in my car on the way home from the foray.

I have the specimen in Connecticut.
