Wierd Fungus

Wierd Fungus

Took this photo on Friday of some wierd (although probably not to its friends and family) fungus.  It was growing on a fallen tree stump in the woods and this picture doesn’t really do it justice as it is truly bright red and very beautiful.   Looking at the bite marks on the top right hand side it also looks like someone has found it quite tasty.  It wasn’t me.  Honest!

    Lovely specimen. Just wondering if it is the Scarlet Elfcup – Sarcoscypha austriaca?
