Chlorociboria aeruginascens (Nyl.) Karst. ex Ram


Chlorociboria aeruginascens (Nyl.) Karst. ex Ram syn.. Chlorosplenium aeruginascens (Nyl.) Karst. Grüner Holzbecherling Chlorosplenium blue-vert, Green Elfcup. Fruit body 1–5mm across, cup-shaped then flattened with a wavy, irregular margin, attached to the substrate by a short stalk, bright blue-green throughout. Asci 70 x 5m. Spores fusiform, containing two small oil drops situated at opposite ends of the spore, 6–10 x 1.5–2µ. Habitat on fallen branches of deciduous trees, especially oak. The mycelium growing through the wood stains it conspicuously blue-green. Season mainly autumn although also found in spring to autumn. The stained wood is often seen but the fruit bodies are less frequent. Not edible. Distribution, America and Europe.
The infected wood, known as ‘green oak’, was formerly used in the manufacture of Tunbridge ware, a traditional method of decoration where woods of different colours were arranged into blocks to give the desired pattern, compressed, then cut transversely into thin strips of veneer.

Hola José Ramón
Impresionante macro de estos minúsculos y exóticos hongos. Los colores y la geometría son cuanto menos inesperados para un neófico por profesión y residencia.
Saludos, José M.

Hola Jose!

This is totally extramundi in both meanings :-) First it remainds great works of our friend Felipe and second - it looks like from another world. Great colours, surfaces, details. Perfect POV and DOF. And I like yellow ghost in upper left corner - probably one of Collembola.

Bonjour,
Je n'irais pas jusqu'à dire que j'en mangerais !
Bonne journée.

The insect next to them is a collembolas. Most probably Folsomia candida (which I posted earlier)
Very surprising colors. nice. Interesting note.

Hola José Ramón,
Sencillamente increíble el color de estos hongos.
La textura y forma son completamente diferentes a los mas comunes y que uno está acostumbrado a ver.
Muy bueno el acercamiento y los detalles captados, incluído el pequeño insecto de bono!
Este mundo de los hongos es extraordinario, sobre todo para mí que recién comienzo a descubrirlos.
Enhorabuena por la foto, gracias por mostrarla y un gran saludo,
JM

Hi Jose,
What a fantastic color... TFS.
Regards.
Fred

This is an unusual kind of fungus, Jose. The waxy looking stuff it grows on looks like a rotten tree trunk. That pale looking insect within the frame adds another subject to your picture, but I think it is just incidental.
Another wonderful addition to your unique collection of fungi.
Thanks.
Ram

Hola Jose,

Nunca imagine que existen setas con estos colores.
Otra captura magnifica de ti - gracias!
El insecto es termita?

Espectacular colorido de estos especímenes tan llamativos Jose Ramon captados con buena nitidez y foco.
La presencia del insecto dentro de la escena es un bonus muy interesante... pareciera una termita... tienes idea?

Hello Jose,
interesting capture, that is quite a color for a funghi, something you would expect in the ocean and not in the forest. Lovely details and nice sharpness. Vewry nice POV an nice frame filling composition.
TFS..Sky

Hola Jose Ramon.

Las que me faltaban por ver, sobre todo con estos colores.
Aunque pensandolo bien cualquier dia muestras otras inverosimiles.
Tambien se observa un insecto muy raro en el lado izdo.

Saudos.
Jose Luis.

Hola Jose Ramón
Qué hongo tan curioso, con ese intenso color azul. La macro es magnífica. El bichejo de la izquierda da más o menos una idea del tamaño real.
Interesante imagen.
Saludos
Maite

Hi Jose

Hello Jose,
What a incredible colour of these fungi. I have never seen something like that. And a very informative note - I learned something new thanks to you. That small Collembola specimen illustrates well the size of the fungi.
Best greetings,
Michal
