Bird's nest fungi (imature)

Family Nidulariaceae, Cyathus sp.


Small cylindrical fungus, bigger ones' diameter reaching 4 to 5 mm. From a distance, it looks like an empty bowl, but looking closer it is possible to see that the inside of the "bowl" actually just has a different, darker, slightly translucent color.
