It’s winter in Australia, and when taking a shortcut between two bush paths, I came across a group of beautiful red fungi. This is only one of a number of species growing now, most of which I have documented previously. The vibrancy and intensity of the colour marks it as different from some orangey-yellow fungi that also grow here.
At the moment I don’t have a species list for Fungi or Lichen as I have not found a good way of identifying each species. However, I do have a large catalogue of photographs taken over the last few years. My intention is to set up a visual list and hope for assistance in identifying each species. Last year, a number of readers provided helpful information.
This year, I recognise most of the species of fungi from previous years, so this red one is the only distinctively different species I have found, growing at the foot of an old tree.
