Lepismium monacanthum in Flower

Placed in various other genera e.g. as Pfeiffera monacantha, this species is found in NW Argentina & SW Bolivia at altitudes of 300 to 2000 meters.

It grows as an epiphyte (not in soil) but unlike many such species, which have white or cream flowers, it has orange flowers, the one shown here measuring about 12mm diameter. Like the vast majority of cacti, the plant has no leaves but the photosynthesis occurs in the green stem, which is flattened, strap-like and +/- parallel-sided.

I obtained this one two months ago, as an unrooted cutting. It had one emerging orange bud, which I expected to abort but which produced this flower. It opened partially on the first day and more fully on the second day.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye. The first pair is from the first day.

Coprinellus lagopus On Wood Chips

After many days of hot, dry weather I was surprised to see this at about 6.30 this morning. Knowing that these inkcaps can change shape rapidly and be finished is a few hours, I took these shots within a few minutes of discovery.

I later investigated the wood chips by diigging down with my hands and found a warm, moist region below the surface but with no liquid water. Mushrooms are mostly associated with moist conditions but this was, at best, marginal.

Some fragments of wood chips on the caps show that the mushrooms pushed upwards through the layers aof wood chips.

The mushrooms were in shade but sunlight on nearby chips sometimes warmed the images a bit.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Mammillaria carmenae

This cactus has attractive yellow spines. There is a red-spined form which I do not have.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, sunlight, hand-held.
