Fungus Rosy Goblet - Symbol of Vodno Protected Area

Posted on February 15, 2021 at 4:55 PM

The Macedonian Mycological Society proposes that the fungus rosy goblet become a symbol of Vodno Protected Area.

The hopes are that before long, part of Vodno Mountain will be proclaimed a protected area in the category of protected landscape, thereby facilitating protection of a number of rare and threatened species occurring in the area. Specifically, five species are categorized as endangered (EN) or vulnerable (VU) pursuant to the IUCN, and they are part of the forthcoming National Red List of Fungi of Macedonia. The rosy goblet (Microstoma protractum) is among those species, emerging in springtime in a very small area in Sredno Vodno. It is a very rare and endangered species. Let us preserve the fungus rosy goblet from Vodno!
