The picture which looks like cone with some small things were found in the jungle near the tree. Locally,it was called tumchhingi em. Tumchhingi is a personal female name and ’em’ is a local basket one used to carry things in the back. Could you give me its name or botanical name or both… is it a plant or fungi or some mushroom

    Looks like a species of bird’s nest fungi from one of the five genera in the family of Nidulariaceae. I’m not a fungi expert, I’m guessing here only this might be a species of the genus Cyathus? Click on link below for more information. Maybe it will lead you further in finding its exact species. Thank you for including its local name. Best wishes!
