Scutellinia scutellata

The Molly Eye Winker is also known as as the Eyelash Cup, Eyelash Fungus and Eyelash Pixie Cup, due to its distinctive long dark "eyelash" hairs around its rim. Another name is Scarlet Elf Cap because the main body of the fungus is a red or dark orange cup. They are small (2-10mm), and usually located on dead logs, or other moist environments, in small groups. According to Wikipedia they are "found on every continent", though I'd be shocked if that included Antarctica. (But they have been found on Alaskan tundra.) Though the Scutellinia genus is currently placed in the Pyronemataceas family, there is some disagreement on whether or not that is accurate. (As a nerd fight, it's not quite on par with Kirk vs. Picard.) When it fruits varies by environment and continent, but in North America, usually in winter and spring.
