Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Dead Man's Fingers Xylaria polymorpha

This is a species commonly found on rotting remains of trees on the woodland floor. This, however, was a rare sight, two very long, very dead, moss-covered trunks on the ground. The larger one must have been some 20 feet (7m) long. Both had these fruiting bodies emerging along their entire length.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/80 at f6.3 and 1/20 at f8, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

I found these before but did not photograph them in a woodland setting:

King Alfed's Cakes

or Cramp Balls, etc. Daldinia concentrica

The crosseye stereo is not as I would like it to be but it shows the spheroid shapes.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Not posted in a while, but I thought I'd share these two little beauties. Mycena adscendens, Frosty Bonnet, I reckon. Caps about 2mm across.

That's very brave of you! I know people who specialise in Mycena who need to check microscopic detail before deciding on the species. That said, it may be that this is one of the few readily reconisable ones, when you know them.

Nice images anyhow.

Yeah, I wholeheartedly agree, most of them in my catalogue are "sp.". But this one looks good, if this is anything to go by

If you accept that the stem has a lot more elongating to do, and if it gets a bit hairier as it does, you could be right.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Would the stem not just get as long as it needed to clear the debris around it? This was sitting out in a clear spot.

No, there is a range of heights but that range is genetically determined rather than primarily by the immediate environment.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Marasmius on Dead Gooseberry Stems

We have a gooseberry bush grafted as a "standard". It is many years old and with many small colonies of moss on its stems. Yesterday I found some tiny (finger nail size) mushrooms growing in a hollow at the top of the main stem. Others were then spotted on other old parts of the plant.

I have had three sessions with this species. One should have been sufficient but rain, having to kneel on cold, wet ground and the thorny stems all made framing and focus difficult. Finding the images from the first, daylight session to be not very good, I had a second session in darkness, the subject spotlighted by a torch grasped between my knees. Even after that, I needed a third session this morning, between rain showers, to get the DOF I wanted.

This species looks very much like the Marasmius oreades which forms the "Fairy Rings" on our lawn. Growing on wood, this may be a different species. However, the first image does suggest a "fairy grotto".

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f13, f11 & f13, twin flash hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Harold

Golden Scaley Cap Pholiota aurivella

This group of button mushrooms was growing in a cleft in a huge felled tree trunk. The shiny appearance is from many hours of rain. Thankfully, this is one shot which did not require kneeling in cold, wet leaf litter.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/30 at f6.3, hand-held, in shade on very dull day.
