Waterfront Museum, Swansea

At the Waterfront museum in Swansea, emerging out of the wood chip mulch was one of the Peziza family. Pezizaceae or 'cup' fungi as they are commonly called, can be found all year round though many fruit in the autumn. Quite a few are specialists, preferring specific conditions or substrates to grow on. The majority need microscopic aid in identification. I collected a couple but I saw at least fifteen.
