Hello Lou,
An outstanding macro shot of this colorful fungi, never seen anything quite like it. Their vivid color amber make them stand out in contrast to the tiny green shoots growing beside them. Focus is super sharp displaying much detail. I like both images, but prefer this one the best. Great work!!

I like the over-view in your workshop image better, Laurens.
It is indeed a very unusual Fungi.
Thanks for sharing it.

Hello Lou
Very interesting and unique looking fungi, the bright colour is great with fine detail. Excellent macro.

Hello Laurens,
Incredible catch....Excellent colors and amazing focus.
A masterpiece.....Thanks for sharing!

Schitterend Lou,prachtopname.

Greetings Lou,

Beautiful shot, I just added it to my new theme Ascomycetes. What you found is surely a Scutellinia, however, identification on species level is not possible without microscope. The yellow apothecia / ascocarps (as most species in this genus has orange, reddish orange ones) may help, hence I think your fungi are one of the following:

- Scutellinia erinaceus (Schwein.) Kuntze;
- Scutellinia setosa (Nees) Kuntze;
- Scutellinia subhirtella Svrček.

I may be wrong, of course, as at least 40 species are occuring in Europe and the differences are mainly microscopical.

Have a nice Christmas, kind regards, László
