Dandenong Ranges Fungus

6 May 2017

Seeing some Cordyceps fungi at Silvan a week ago reminded me of a patch in the RJ Hamer Arboretum, Olinda last year where I saw many of this species that parasitises pupating moth caterpillars. Last year I was a bit late and most of the specimens were decaying but being earlier this year I saw many good specimens, as well as some still emerging. I saw over 100 Cordyceps gunnii as well as about 20 Cordyceps robertsii under a copse of silver wattle, Acacia dealbata.

While spending time there photographing the fungi I also observed two wingless female soldier flies, Boreoides subulatus. I also encountered three winged flies behaving similarly and I think these might be male Boreoides subulatus.
