All these pics were taken in a park in Rotterdam, “het Kralingse Bos”. The red cup like mushroom is probably an Ascocoryne sarcoides, also known as jelly drops and purple jellydiscs. This fungus is known for its ability to make both sexual and a-sexual spores. In the past scientist had a hard time to name this fungus because of this treat.
