Hi Hasan,

Although it's better not to fully identify an ascomyceta without microscopic analysation (I mean I didn't do it), this species on the pic seems different than Cudonia circinans. That species is growing exclusively in coniferous forests, the stem-alike sterile part is striate and in most of the cases darker than the "cap" (being an ascomyceta it doesn't have a real cap and stem the usual way we mean). None of these features are visible on your photo. Due to the glabrous, greeny yellow surface and the non-decorated, same-colored "stem" of your fungus I think you photographed Leotia lubrica (Scop.) Pers., the type species of the genus Leotia, another very suggestive Helotiales. However, recent phyllogenetic studies prove that Leotia lubrica s. l. in its current wide interpretation is a polyphylletic group of at least 2 biological species, which are practically indistinguishable from each other without genetic analysation.

Photographically: the composition's very good, but the focus seems a bit soft and minor camera shake is also detectable. Use a stone or branches for long exposures like 1/30 or slower if you don't have a mini-tripod with you in the woods.

Best regards, László
