Dear Raghu Ji,

The Fungi in the attached photo is .......


Cookeina tricholoma (Mont.) Kuntze., Sarcoscyphaceae (Ascomycetes)

Synonyms: Peziza tricholoma Mont., (1834), Pilocratera tricholoma (Mont.) Henn., and Trichoscypha tricholoma (Mont.) Cooke, (1889).

 

Apothecia are goblet to funnel-shaped with an inrolled margin, 1–2 cm (0.4–0.8 in) in diameter, with slender stipes that are 1–3 cm (0.4–1 in) tall, The apothecia are conspicuously hairy; hairs stiff, bristle-like, fasciculate, and usually 2–3 mm long. Its asci are 280–350 × 13–18 µm. The ascospores pointed-ellipsoid, surface with fine, longitudinal ridges, biguttulate, 25–35 × 11–13.5 µm. The typical habitat is on wood like twigs and rotten tree limbs, at low altitudes (usually below 1000 m), in the tropics.

 

This is one of the species of bright colored cup fungi that grow on wood in the tropics. The copious hairs on the outside of the cup readily distinguish C. tricholoma.


Regards
Tanay
