Greens Bush Fungus

5 July 2015

Travelled down the Mornington Peninsula to Green's Bush, a near coastal habitat with sandy soil. I wasn't expecting much as before the overnight light rain we had about two weeks of dry conditions. Down here though it seemed to have been wetter and, although not as prolific as forays here in previous years, there were still quite a lot of species to see.

Almost immediately through the gate there was a colony of several jelly-baby fungus Leotia lubrica — although not rare I don'tencounter these every year. Later in the day we found another colonmy with even more individuals, which meant today I saw about twice as many as I'd seen before in my life.

Poronia erici is a fungus found on dung that I'd only encountered twice before, so it was good to see it again. There were also many Geoglossum sp about, most of them very small and hidden amongst the moss. Also sighted was this purple coral fungi, which I think might be Ramaria aff versatilis. I don't recal having previously photographed one of the purple ones. There was also a possible slime mould on the ground. This species is quite common on exposed soil after rain but I have no idea what it is. It emerges as clear, multi-pointed crystaline-like stars that develop into white, fluffy, cloud-like (presumably) sporagnia. I first photographed it in June 2008.
