I was fortunate enough to attend a workshop about fungi run by Alison Pouliot on the weekend. We ended the day with a walk through Wagga Wagga Botanic Gardens looking for fungi, and found more than I’d expected to. I have no idea what most of these are, although I’m sure Alison could tell you, but they look rather fab so I thought I’d share. Click on the photos to enlarge, they look better bigger.
I do remember that the red one is Aseroe rubra, the first native Australian fungus to be scientifically described, we found several specimens, but most looked like shrivelled reddish petals or similar, very uninteresting, so finding the one fully open specimen was exciting.
Please excuse the terrible formatting in this post – all the pics I’ve added captions to have ‘floated’ to the top, meaning some of the photos are now out of sequence.
