  Cup fungus - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
Cup fungi are fungi (Ascomycota: Family Pezizaceae) which produce a mushroom that tends to grow in the shape of a "cup".
They may be vividly colored, like the scarlet cup, which is often one of the first signs of spring where it grows.
While most cup fungi are not poisonous, as with all mushroom hunting, one should never consume a mushroom without having a positive identification of it first.

This is a fowl-smelling fungus that attracts flies to its spore-laden, slimy body, thus increasing the odds of its spores being dispersed to new habitats.
In mutualistic mycorrhizal associations, the roots furnish the fungus with sugars and amino acids, while the fungus facilitates in the absorption of water and mineral nutrients by the tree.
Generally, poisonous mushrooms are characterized by the presence of white spores, a cuplike volva at the base of the stalk, a ring or annulus on the stalk, and remnants of the universal veil on the umbrellalike cap.

Lichens are a mutualistic symbiotic relationship between a fungus (usually a sac or cup fungus called an ascomycete - division Ascomycota) that produces acids to release minerals from the rock and an alga (usually a green alga - division Chlorophyta) that produces carbohydrates.
Of course most of this fungus (division Basidiomycota) grows inside of the tree in the form of a filamentous mycelium which we usually do not see, rather we see the spore producing structure (in this case called a conk) when environmental conditions are appropriate.
The particular type of fungus on this tree is often referred to as a conk or shelf fungus.

There are cup fungi related to the morel, and they would have undergone similar evolution during earlier ice age cycles.

This indent would be the early evolution of a "cup fungus." It demonstrates the function of the cup which ascosporogenous fleshy fungi usually have.
For these reasons, the cup shape is the form toward which fleshy ascomycetes must usually evolve, and there is a convergence of evolution at that point.
The cup fungi which are related to Morchella thereby appear to be more similar to Helvella than Morchella, at least in terms of the described characteristics, and therefore they may have evolved from that genus.

The cup is a dikaryotic structure (N + N) formed when two mating strains of (1N) hyphae fuse together and grow into a "fruiting body".
The ascospores are produced after the two different nuclei in the dikaryotic cup fuse together and then divide through meiosis into four daughter cells.
