Caption: Moss cup fungi (Sarcoscypha austriaca) growing in the soil, feeding on rotting vegetation. The red cups are the edible fruiting bodies of this fungus. Cup fungi are spore shooters (ascomycetes) that eject their reproductive spores from small sacs or asci. These cups are also called scarlet elf cups.
