Cambarville Fungi Foray

23 April 2017

Early season fungi forays are always a bit of hit-and-miss but we had a bit of autumn rain already so I thought it wasn't going to be too bad. The mushrooms were however well hidden and we were forced into more actively searching, including lifting up of logs to see what was underneath. This meant we found a relatively large number of resupinate fungi wrapping themselves around the underside of branches, such as Serpula himantioides with its intricate, brain-like maze, and the bright yellow forest of spines of the more commonly encountered Mycoacia/Phlebia subceracea.

Turning logs over and looking under bark also reveals other interesting life-forms, such as flatworms and velvet worms. I was lucky enough to find a velvet worm, only the third time I've seen them and the first time on the Australian mainland. Apart from being very attractive, this phylum is interesting from a taxonomic point of view too as they are closely related to arthropods and possibly similar to their evolutionary ancestors. They are all exclusively terrestrial and only found in the tropics and southern hemisphere.

Leafe beetle identified by Martin Lagerwey on BowerBird, Tamara Leitch corrected my snake ID and Dr Leigh Winsor for the flatworm.
