Unidentified Fungi Pt. 2

Here are a few more photographs of the fungi we have growing at the moment.

Fungi 01
A group of these delicate fungi are growing in the grass right next to the house.
Fungi 02
Growing in sandy soil along one of the tracks in the bush part of the property, this one is quite sculptural with the flukes and the peeling stem.

Fungi 04
I found this one growing in leaf litter beneath some tall bracken fronds.
Fungi 05
This group of frilly edged fungi is growing on a path around the dam.

Fungi 07
This one is growing in grass alongside the driveway.
Fungi 08
And this one is growing in grass along the front fence.
Fungi 09
Among fallen bark, moss, and the odd weed or two I found a group of tiny white fungi. Difficult to photograph and the moss in the foreground will give an indication of size.
Fungi 10
I forget where I found this group, but we had a few of this species scattered around the place. Mostly, I think they were in grassed areas.
Fungi 11
This one was growing in a transitional area between bush and grassland.
Fungi 12
This specimen was very large – big enough to be seen from the house when it was growing on the other side of the dam. My guess is 15 cm to 20 cm across – I didn’t think to measure it at the time.

Fungi 14
Appearing thin and almost like a fallen petal, this fungus looks unusual. I’ve only found one example of it so far.

    1. Thanks Fabio. To be honest, I really don’t know much about the fungi. I haven’t managed to find a good field guide yet, and the online sources I’ve found are a bit difficult to use. I haven’t tried to eat any of them, simply because I don’t know if they are edible or not. Most of the fungi I have found have stayed in the ground until they came to a natural end, so I don’t think the animals eat them. However, I have seen quite a few with insects on them – mostly ants. There is probably Fungi Part 3 coming up – I’ve taken more photos over the last couple of days, and there still seems to be new fungi appearing. I would love to know more about the fungi here too, so if I find out anything, I’ll add it in a new post. Lisa

      1. Thanks so much, Lisa! Yes, don’t even try to eat any of the fungi around. Looking forward to seeing sequel #3! Take care and enjoy everything of your beautiful and interesting 15 acres!!! 🙂

Let me know what you think!
