Yellow Fairy Cup

Bisporella citrina


Fruit bodies begin as spherical, closed globules, before expanding. The smooth, bright yellow fruit bodies are small—typically less than 3 mm (0.12 in) in diameter and up to 1 mm (0.04 in) high—and shallowly cup- or disc-shaped. The inner surface is smooth, and bright yellow, while the outer surface is a paler yellow. In mass, the spore color is white. The stalk is broad, pale yellow in color, and short to nearly absent


The widespread fungus is known from North Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Central and South America,Australia,and New Zealand. It is one of the most common of the small discomycetes.
