Yes it's Mistletoe, growing on an Apple Tree. The nest was only about 4 feet off the ground so level with the lens opening of the hide.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Thought I'd already posted this, so apols if it's a duplicate. Two tiny fungi, Omphalina sp. has been suggested. No idea, really.

More likely waxcap Hygrocybe sp.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Very tiny and growing in a small wet patch of moss on a loose-stone metalled forest road, but I agree, it does look Hygrocybe-like.

Edit- The cap was about 0.5cm, looking at Phillips there are small Hygrocybes in that kind of habitat. So yes, a definite contender

Someone on a specialist group has suggested Rickenella fibula, which is a good fit.

It could be. The gills are not very visible but there is a suggestion that they are decurrent. R. fibula was in Mycena.

John,

Yes. It was bad enough with all the fungus Common Names being introduced, without all the taxonomic shuffling.

I think you can see the gills better on this one. 100% crop from my Stylus-1.

Yes. The gills are decurrent and the base of the stem is downy. The striate cap is not visible here (too immature?) but it is in the original pair. So it fits Rickenella.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

This Burnt-tip orchid was from my recent trip to France. It was a spectacular region for Orchid species, many new to me, but the Burnt-tips were in very good condition. If there is interest I will post other species.

Excellent. Let's have more.

I visited our local reserve last week. Lots of orchids (chalk grassland) but only three species.

The Woodcock Bee-orchid or simply the Woodcock orchid- Ophrys scolopax. With a little visitor. I have several of this species, but only this has the bonus beetle.

And Early spider orchid - Ophrys sphegodes. This was going over but I only saw this one plant.

There are around 20 species. But uploading and naming etc will mean this takes a while.
