I'd say Microporus looks a lot more likely.
Thanks myoxomop (love the name btw!). Unfortunately I'm far too far away to check for pores now (and I guess these would have decayed themselves anyway) , but I'm am headed back out to the Tropics so I'll bare your notes in mind for potential future spottings.
Microporus sp. if poroid, Podoscypha sp. if not. Pores may be so small as to be barely visible with the naked eye.
This is so unique & beautiful!!! Looks like a type of trumpet fungi.
hi craig, thx for the warm words at the other spotting, was already researching for this one, take a carefull look at this fungus. some picture let suspect that sometime this fungi looked like a glass ( http://www.google.nl/search?tbm=isch&... ). [phellodon tomentosus]. otherwise look/search for some specien from the genus phellodon from the area , you had found them. good luck. will be again online the days. cheers
Thanks Marta. Yeah they do look like goblets for forest nectar! They had a very papery texture too.
Wow! pretty! they look like wine glasses :-)
