This is a large family, many of which are soil-inhabiting species. In shape, they are either cup-shaped or ear-shaped, and are often brightly coloured. It's the spore-sac structure that separates this family from other cup fungi.
Traditionally, these bright orange or red cup fungi with marginal hairs have been called Scutellinia colensoi, yet with the numerous similar species found in New Zealand, checking with a microscope is needed.
A small genus with only two species found in New Zealand.
