Peziza repanda + Geoglossum cookeianum





 It is nice to find fungi throught the year ---- so the end of December is a bonus.  This cup fungus in a tractor track, Pembrey forest was 60mm across, pale brown and rather thin.  After microscopy it keyed out to P repanda.  The only problem is the asci did not 'blue' with iodine --- the likely reason being my chemicals are too old.  Must order fresh stock.

This Geoglossum was all over the dune grassland a month ago ---- just one seen today.
