Hi friends,

More than 2 years ago I posted a photo with the title Ascomycetes Time - I explained there what they are and why I like them so much. Although, of course you can find basidiomycetes in winter, too, the conspicuosly coloured ascomycetes are very spectacular, regardless of their tiny size.

On my recent pic you can see one of the Eyelash Cups (Scutellinia sp.). It's impossible to do proper identification without microscope in this genus, even the type species of the genera, Scutellinia scutellata (L.) Lamb. is most probably a complex of closely related biological species. So, looking at the macroscopic features - size, colour, fruiting time, hair length, substrate (wood) - my photo shows either S. scutellata s. l. (sensu lato = in wide sense) or S. crinita, very possibly. Other species of the genera look different in colour, hair size or substrate.

Photo: was done in the Glenbower Woods, near Killeagh village. Handheld, ISO 80, f/5.6, 1/20 sec. in manual exposure mode. Workshop shows a cluster of fruitbodies from the same wood.

Please also feel free to check (and contribute to, if applicable) my group themes Ascomycetes (100 photos, full) and Ascomycetes 2.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Laszlo,it's still early for butterflies in your region, but there are some nice surprises like these little mushrooms. A nice macro exercise considering the size. The main photo is gorgeous, with great details and difficult light, the WS with an extended family is also very useful. Bad weather has come back to me, I don't know when I will find other butterflies. Happy Sunday and thanks for the comments, you are one of the few who still keeps this site alive.Luciano
