Arthur Williams sends us a rarity here: pictures of fungi. These come from Australia, and we have no identifications. Arthur’s notes are indented, and you can enlarge the photos by clicking on them:
How about a few fungi?
All of these were spotted on a single short walk from Durras North to Depot Beach on the south coast of NSW. In fact most were seen within 500 metres or so from Point Upright. They ranged from tiny (the orange fungus on the tree) through to 20cm tall, and with caps up to 30cm diameter.
Other than that, I don’t know anything about them. I was just fascinated by the variety of forms, sizes and colours to be found in such a small area of bush. I am however hoping to improve my fungus knowledge at a workshop at Mulligan’s Flat in Canberra in May!
