Spores
Spores 5.5-7.5 µm, globose, smooth, hyaline; spores whitish in deposit.

Edibility

Comments
A snowbank fungus, Caloscypha fulgens is distinguished by its yellowish-orange, variously-shaped cups which discolor bluish-green with handling or age. It resembles Aleuria aurantia, the Orange Peel Fungus, but the latter lacks a bluing reaction and typically fruits in the fall. White forms, but still bluing, are occasionally encountered. This is one of a number of Ascomycetes used by morel hunters as an indicator species.
