Fenugreek Stalkball Phleogena faginea

These are like tiny cotton buds and tend to appear in colonies of many hundreds. The live on dead wood and these were on what had been the inner surface of a split log in mixed woodland.

The name is from the scent of the herb fenugreek, of which it smells.

I know we find them infrequently but I didn't realise it was 5 years since I last photographed them:

For closer views see the previous posting via the link.

The feather-like growth is another, much more common woodland fungus.

Stropharia: How It Really Looks in Habitat

It is customary to post images of individual mushrooms, or small groups of them, all obstructions to a clear view having been removed. Although I have removed a considerable amount of overlying, brown grass, these are still much as I found them.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/60 at f9 ISO 800, hand-held.

Yeah, but have you ever tried eating the berries? I did and I had to go to the casualty department to get my mouth unpuckered they were so sour!

Dingy Twiglet Simocybe centunculus

I found this on one of the rotting logs I leave in my garden for fungi, etc. to colonise. It didn't look quite like a species I had found before and had not been present in any of the several previous years that the log had been there.

The colour which I first noticed was the yellow, although the top of the cap had a lot of brown colour. The yellow is not mentioned in descriptions I have located but it soon turned to brown in the following days. There were two colonies, one browner than the other.

https://www.mushroomexpert.com/simoc...ntunculus.html

The stereos are crosseye.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f9, f10, f11, twin flash hand-held.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Tiny Ascomycete Fungus Dendryphion comosum

This forms an untidy fuzz on the stems of some perennials, in this case dead Goldenrod stems on the ground.

These are extremely tiny fruiting bodies, the highest magnification being of a FOV 3.5mm wide.

I suppose I should not assume that everyone knows about Goldenrod. The stem is about as thick as a pencil. (Remember those? )

This is the anamorph form of the fungus. It is the asexual form, which used to be called the Fungi Imperfecti. The Telomorph form is the sexual one, the familiar mushrooms or, in the case, possibly a small disc or cup. It seems that only the anamorph is known. Many species have been described under two names, one for each form.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Olympus 4/3 x2 TC, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f13, triple flash hand-held.

Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at f11, twin TTL flash hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Harold
