Scratch & Sniff: Scytinostroma portentosum

This is a crust fungus growing on dead wood (Beech?). Rubbing or scratching the surface releases a strong odour of moth balls (camphor). Those of us who have visited the back room of the entomology department of a museum recognise it immediately.

The texture looks more like a fabric than a fungus.

Olympus EM-1 (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, flash.

Coprinus Comatus.
I know ziltch about fungi, but I spotted this one whilst walking my dogs in the land behind my house. I went back for a camera, and I now believe this is a Shaggy Ink Cap, a.k.a. Lawyers Wig, proper name Coprinus Comatus. Google tells me it is quite common.

Was that recent? It would be well out of season.

It is one of the few Inkcaps still in Coprinus, others having been moved to Coprinellus or Coprinopsis.

The pre-inky stage, when the gills are still pink, is a delicacy.

Some Lichens in Stereo

In October I picked up some pieces of rotten tree branches from the lawn in a large country house. I thought that the lichens (two main species) growing on them might make some decent stereo pairs. Anyway, here are some crosseye pairs.

EM-1 (manual mode), f16, triple TTL flash.

It was taken the same day as I posted it, but be aware that I do live in SW France. The weather here has been very wet for weeks. Does that make a difference?

Moisture is important but its season in the UK is late summer to autumn. Sometimes their (mushrooms') season can be disrupted e.g. after an unusually long drought.
