Soil Cup Tarzetta cupularis

This is a small (ca 10mm) fungus which occurs (mostly) as a solitary fruiting body. This year I have found it three times in compost in flower pots. This third one is unseasonably late but this is because it was in as heated greenhouse (minimum 15C).

It lacks the crystalline appearance of the first one, which was more mature.

https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/to...1138/#14813557

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f11 (first) then f14 ISO 800, twin flash hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Here is what it looks like today. This is what happens when a cup tries to form a plate. Not very tidy!

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Parodia horstii

This cactus was flowering in early June.

Also known as Parodia ottonis ssp horstii, it is "Endangered" (IUCN Red List) in its natural habitat (Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil). The flower can be yellow, orange or red on different plants.

Many decades ago this was in the genus Notocactus, now combined with Parodia. N. ottonis and N. scopa were/are to be found in most amateur collections.

Fortunately, species of Parodia propagate easily from seed.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/400 at f8 ISO 250, hand-held.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

The information about this hybrid is scarce.

"It originates from Brazil and is found mainly high up on the coastal mountains of Eastern Brazil where the air is moist. They grow in cracks of trees and where leaves have fallen to create a rich mulch for them to root in."

It seems to have been used for further hybridization, but the hybrids produced seem to be more like other Schlumbergera hybrids.

At first I thought it was rather untidy and unattractive. But a close look shows an inrolled rim to the petals. The ppale, opening flower is very delicate.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8 or f9, hand-held.The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Paralepista flaccida Tawny Funnel Cap

The naming of this species has a complex history. Enjoy:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paralepista_flaccida

We found it at the edge of a chalk hill grassland field yesterday. The caps were around 10cm diam.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/13 or 1/13 atf9, f8, or f11, ISO 800 or 1600, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Scarlet Hood Wax Cap Hygrocybe coccinea

These were on chalk grassland in late November, where lots of leaves from deciduous trees had blown to and accumulated.

There are 63 species in Britain. These are about 5cm across. Other species are smaller and at least one up to considerably larger.

I also find them in the mown lawns at the local cemetery.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/3 at f11 and 1/50 at f8, ISO 800, hand-held.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold
