Spring Ascos

The spring is here and that means many will be venturing to charred forests in search of the highly sought after Morel. Although very tasty, this isn't the only spring fungus around. Many different species of ascomycetes thrive in the warming temperatures and you may find some where you least expect them. Take for example this Peziza sp. I came across on a thrown away mattress/mat/something synthetic. Keep your eyes open!
