Scarlet Cup April 4, 2012

Sarcoscypha coccinea



Mycological Notes:

Scarlet Cup is a harbinger of spring. The fruiting body is thin and tough and saucer-shaped with a deep bright red upper surface and a whitish exterior. I found this specimen on the side of a seasonal road running though a hardwood forest in Remsen NY.
