Scarlet Elfcup fungi

The fungi are bright and beaufiful.


There is a small area of willow carr beside the River Ock south of Tesco, a really damp area which hosts quite a few fungi species - I have identified 19 species there so far.

Yesterday I found a rather beautiful group of Scarlet Elfcups (Sarcoscypha austriaca) or could possibly be Ruby Elfcups (S. coccinea) which are almost indistinguishable.
