Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Small Stagshorn Calocera cornea

Unlike C.viscosa, which is confined to conifers, this species is found only on broad-leafed trees. This was on Oak. The lichens on this length of dead branch on the floor has the typical coarse bark and cover of lichens ("lichenised fungi").

The fungus darkens from yellowish to orange in dry conditions. It was somewhat irksome that these were not yellow after several days of rain, rain the night before and rain during our search.

The term "stagshorn" is used in several fungus names. No stag ever had horns (permanent, unbranched): they have antlers which are seasonal and branched.

This species is mms tall, compared with C viscosa, which is cms tall.

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

Thanks. these daylight shots require only two hands. I am about to fit a very bright Cree torch with a tripod thread so that I can see what I am focusing on.
