Cup Fungi - The Elves’ Friends of the Forest

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Virtual Event

Join the Finger Lakes Native Plant Society and Teresa Iturriaga of the Cornell Plant Pathology Herbarium for a virtual presentation about fungi. Discomycetes are a subset of the Ascomycetes that encompass all fungi with cup-shaped fruiting bodies that produce asci and ascospores. This general introduction will detail their unique morphological characters, taxonomic position, and examples of molecular and morphological research. Their miniature shapes, colors, textures, and ornamentation make them beautiful flowers for the elves of the forest.
