Description

Lots of these little guys scattered on twigs in the McDonald Dunn Forest. The genus Nidula does not have a funiculus attaching the peridioles to the cup. Rather, they are encased in a sticky gel, as shown in the cut away close-ups. I had to get a measurement of the peridioles before posting. Those of N. niveotomentosa are under 1 mm, as shown. The other option, N candida, has peridioles over 1mm. Also note the epiphram, (the lid) starting to dissolve in the last pic.

Not sure of species, I think it's a young P. repanda based on color, texture and the short stem. It was on a stump, probably Acer macrophyllum, so rotten I could have easily pushed it over.

Description

I especially like the last picture, the close-up of the 'eggs' (the peridioles). You can see the very thin thread (the funiculus) that attaches it to the 'nest', (the peridium). When the egg is splashed out, the cord will often wrap itself around a thin piece of vegetation, leaving the egg exposed to be eaten by a grazing herbivore then excreted on a nice pile of dung, or nibbled away by insects, thus releasing the spores.
