is a small fungus usually found on moss like this image, but can occaisionally be found on grass and twigs growing from winter to spring.
the cap (5/15mm) is cup shaped, then expanded, buff/white, inner fertile surface is a greyish white, with radiating wrinkles. Microscopic examination is needed for propper determination.

Een super macro, je maakt het onzichtbare zichtbaar. Het mos lijkt wel zo groot dat een ree zich erin zou kunnen verschuilen :))).
