''Cyathus striatus'', commonly known as the fluted bird's nest, is a common saprobic bird's nest fungus with a widespread distribution throughout temperate regions of the world. This fungus resembles a miniature bird's nest with numerous tiny "eggs"; the eggs, or ''peridioles'', are actually lens-shaped bodies that contain spores.
