Peziza positive for Tophill Low
News reaches me that we have a positive identification on the Peziza species Doug Fairweather and I found at Tophill Low NR earlier this month which was sent away to an expert to cast his eyes over. Named as Layered Cup Peziza varia it means we can now add this to the list. Many species are impossible to identify without help and guidance. Sorry for showing it again... but now we have the name for it then it is a shame not too.
Also Doug was pleased his thoughts on the identification of this earthball at Ryton, North Yorkshire, were proven correct when it was looked at by a higher authority. He is now adding Scleroderma cepa to his list and here it is pictured!
