New mushroom

Recommended Posts

This cup mushroom is not familiar to me. ID help please?


It appears to be growing up from the roots of a dogwood tree whose stump I burned out last year. If you watch them carefully you'll see little puffs of white spores coming out periodically. Pretty cool.


P.S. The "Indiana Mushroom Species" section of this web site is not working anymore.

I've been finding these around my yard for a couple of seasons.  Did you get a positive ID? 

Looks pretty similar. I never did get a positive ID, but I think DHuntington is probably on the right track (Peziza phyllogena).
