Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Plicaturopsis crispa aka Plicatura crispa

We found this last year in a situation where I couldn’t get usable images of the underside. Last week a specimen on a thin twig gave a superb display of the undersides but the top views were not very accessible.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Macrotyphula fistulosa the Pipe Club Amongst Autumn Colours

Last week a group of enthusiasts found a mature club and a juvenile one in a local Beech wood. Apparently, they are common in some other woods, which I have not visited, but I come across them occasionally. Here are posts about previous encounters:

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...7674/#13285760

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...5012/#13837835

Surprisingly, these the Typhula group of pipe genera are more closely related to the gill fungi (Basidiomycetes) than to the Ascomtcetes

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/15 at f5.6, hand-held.

The first image is of the juvenile.

The stereo is crosseye.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Harold,

A fascinating fungus and some remarkable pictures (especially the ones on F & M)

I will have a look back and see because it triggered a memory of a fungus I had shot it Ashridge. But you know what memory is like.

The shots from previous years really give a good description of the location and what you could see. So not easy to notice or overlook as just an old grass spike.

Looking forward to the next ones.

Thanks, Peter.

I have yet to be the one on a group that spots these, possibly because I am lagging behind, taking photos. These are made even less conspicuous by the colours of the fallen beech leaves.

That wood was so productive of photogenic fungi and Myxos that I will pay a private visit on Thursday, hoping to visit the parts with conifers.

I have checked on the colour temperature of the RAW files and have cooled these slightly.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Stropharia aeruginosa Edible or Poisonous?

This is a mushroom readily recognised by its colouration, although that tends to fade, possibly washed out by rain. It grows in association with wood. We have found it in our garden each year alongside old behive wood used to support or contain small beds of soil around fruit or vegetable plants. This colony is growing on one-year-old wood chips on soil.

Some people say it is edible, others say it is poisonous. I am not going to test that personally! It doesn't help that at least two species of Strophariaook similar.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/25 or 1/30 at f11 hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Does not look too edible, and certainly not appetising. But again a nice informative set of photos...……..

Thanks. The colour makes me think of arsenic, not a fungus ingredient.

Very! I saw it first!

Actually, we were on an SSI with special permission, not to forage for the table.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Resupinatus sp a Mushroom Which Grows Upside Down

This genus has its cap downwards and its gill facing upwards. I grows on wood (the undersides of dead twigs) and is seen only occasionally. If the name sounds familiar, The crust fungi are known as resupinates because they grow upside down.

High magnification:

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at f8 (? not recorded), triple TTL flash hand-held.

Low magnification:

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8, triple flash hand-held.

Harold
