Comprehensive Description

    Disciotis
    provided by wikipedia

    Disciotis is a genus of fungi in the family Morchellaceae. Members of this family, characterized by their cup- or bowl-shaped apothecia, have a widespread distribution, especially in northern temperate regions.[1]

    Description

    Disciotis has a cupulate (cup-shaped) pileus with vein-like hymenial folds and a small to non-existent stipe.[2]

    Species

    The type species is Disciotis venosa, originally described as Peziza venosa by Christian Hendrik Persoon in 1801. Other species described in the genus include:

    • Disciotis ferruginascens Boud.
    • Disciotis maturescens Boud. (1891)
    • Disciotis rufescens R. Heim (1934)

    It has been suggested that these species (and variants not listed above) all represent a single, morphologically variable species.[3]
