"Fluted Bird's Nest" Was Found Near the Jim Jiem River

in FungiFriday7 months ago

This is my contribution to #FungiFriday, which is now in its 21st week.

These photos were taken yesterday afternoon while I was walking through the forest near the Jim Jiem river in Bandar Baru, Pidie Jaya district, Aceh.





Look at what's inside; it's a rare fungus that mimics a bird's nest. It is Cyathus striatus, a species of fungus belonging to the family Nidulariaceae. That fungus is funnel-shaped, with the sides scaly, and you can see on the surface there is a place to keep the "eggs" or "seeds", but it's actually the peridioles that contain the spores.



People call this the "fluted bird's nest" fungus because of its shape, which resembles a bird's nest. The bird's nest mushroom is almost never seen among the many mushroom spots I've found, and I've only found them twice. Normally, they occur in large clusters, but I only got a few there.







I'm hoping to get more species on my next mushroom walk, but first I need to get in shape and be in a good mood, of course!

Happy #FungiFriday! 😉

@akukamaruzzaman, are these fungi from another dimension?! Man, they are very strange looking, and somehow beautifully disturbing...
Great work! <3

Thank you. Yes, the shape is strange. However, the fungus exists and is most likely common in Southeast Asia.

Wow really cool, where did you find this mushroom?

I'm sure you didn't read it all the way through because I already noted where the mushroom was taken. 🤣

Sadly, no mushrooms like this can be found in the mushroom spots we frequently visit.
