Lovely shot of the 'Flames' Mike - it would seem the dry spell followed by this wet spell might have helped it as appearing in other places too!

A great find, expertly determined, Chris. - And a superb macro shot to boot!

This has now been seen by Hans-Otto Baral the operculate discomycete maestro: http://www.ascofrance.com/forum/68777/t ... monipilosa, and while it is clearly a Trichopeziza
it is not "limonipilosa"; this is a confused area.
