What is the purpose of the hair-like structures? Spore collection?

What a curious little fellow you have caught there!  Looks quite adorable. Kinda of reminds

me of the little dust bunnies in the movie Totoro. One almost expects it to start rolling about.
Lovely capture! 


(Now, I hope you don't mind my sharing a link on the above subject matter that I believe is very interesting, compelling,
spellbinding and could just be exactly what humanity needs in order to help many of our most pressing problems in the world today. 
It is a film by Louie Swartzberg, under the title of fantasticfungi.com/   Do take a peek when you have a moment, if you will. )

oh how neat! looks very similiar to the Eyelash Cup fungi...but red instead of orange...how brilliantly beautiful!
hey there, thanks - we do have orange cups here and they are easily found scattered around the forests.
