like finding these bird’s nest fungi.


I’ve found them many times over the years …. I’ve just never found them growing in an old rotting gumball.


This unopened cup measured roughly a quarter-inch in diameter.

A strip of rotting wood laid near a wall and had the birds’ nest fungi too.

The eggs contain the spores.
