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.

Coprinopsis 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.

[Edit]I don't know why I called this Coprinellus (a valid genus for other species) . It is Coprinopsis, corrected above.[Edit ends]

Echinopsis marsoneri Flower

This species used to be in Lobivia. It also used to be L. jajoiana, npw considered to be a form of E. marsoneri. It is the most desirable of species, the blackish hymen, or throat ring, being very distinctive. The flower can be any color from yellow to orange to red or violet. This one was the first flower I have had with this species, on a plant obtained earlier this year, and open only for this morning.

The stereo is crosseye.

Allium moly Golden Garlic

Last year we were given some bulbs which we planted among other flowering plants in our garden. We did not know what to expect and were delighted by these yellow flowers.

Thanks. The popular use of "garlic" here is incorrect botanically.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Agrocybe rivulosa on Woodchip Pile

It is in the family Strophariaceae, of which we find Stropharia in the garden but not on wood chips, although it seems to be associated with rotting wood elsewhere in the garden. As seems to be the case, at least in the current drought conditions, these were found at first light in the mornings.

First recorded in Britain in 2003 and added to the British List in 2004, this is another species found in our garden which was unknown when we moved in 20 years ago. It is not in the revised (2006) Philips book. The habitat is typical. The species normally appears in large groups but these first examples (2 on 28 July and 2 more on 1 August) may not be well-established, the pile of chips having been there for less than a year.

Mike Harrison directed me to the species identity and description.

The strange grooves, looking rather like they have been water-worn, are very distinctive, the other British species of the genus having smooth (ish) caps. When I saw the first one I thought it was the remnants of a slug feast! Thankfully, I photographed it anyway.

When I could, I photographed them in sunlight but the early morning sunlight has to penetrate through gaps in trees and does not always reach the mushrooms. At other times it was shade WB.

The first two Images are of the first ones found.

Roscoea purpurea Spice Island

This is a variety of a species with paler flowers than the rich purple one I posted previously but the plant is equally hardy.
