Some highlights of 2014
    #20453314 - 08/21/14 12:21 PM (6 years, 8 months ago)

It's been a while since I've made a thread and the mushroom season in southern Australia is coming to an end, so I thought I'd share some of mushrooms I've met this year. My photography skills are shameful when compared to some of the amazing talent we have on the Shroomery, but hopefully the photos are redeemed by their interesting subjects.

I'll start with a favourite. This Limacella species is one of the slimiest mushrooms I've encountered. They're often adorned with small insects that were unwittingly trapped in the slime. Perhaps it's a cunning defence mechanism against fungus gnats.


Another favourite and coincidently another slimy mushroom. Cortinarius erythraeus usually hide under the leaf litter but give away their hiding place with glimpses of their vivid red caps.


If I'm posting slimy mushrooms I can't forget this one. Another Cortinarius but this time probably an undescribed species referred to as Cortinarius 'lilac and cream'.


I'll move away from slimy mushrooms but continue on with some more Corts. Outside of the wax caps green seems to be an uncommon mushroom colour, making Cortinarius austrovenetus an easily recognisable species.


A couple more Corts that I don't have names for...




Another favourite of mine is Mycena clarkeana. It's an attractive purple species but they loose their looks quickly as they dry out.


I'll finish this post with some shitty finds... or at least some shit loving finds. This tiny little coprinoid was barely a couple mm in diameter.


These little Poronia erici buttons were poking out of some kangaroo poo.


Finally, a glimpse into the world of the fungi imperfecti with Stilbella fimentaria on some unidentified dung.




And just for the sake of sharing here are some plants that I came across last week.

Hovea linearis


Donkey orchid (Diuris sp.)


Lastly a sundew (Drosera whittakeri)

Sundews are awesome! A few species grow abundantly in some of my regular hunting spots.

Well written, and that is an extremely beautiful orchid.  Have you come across any of the same genus with white and purple flowers, please?

I only ever see these yellow and purple ones (which I think are Diuris pardina), never with white. Here are some more photos from previous years.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post the additional photographs.  While I am quite taken with the first orchid, those are lovely orchids, as well!  I slightly enhanced the last photograph, noticed a few webs, and now wonder if its makers may be little evil spider mites, or merely a solitary spider acting as guardian, instead.  I tend to guess the latter.

Poor buggers, I bet some of the measures taken to control spider mites spoil biodiverse ecosystems, introducing chemicals and poorly adapted predators, at a pointless cost. Long live spider mites.

Those spider mites can diversify themselves upon ivy and other things, elsewhere, leaving the beautiful orchids happily healthy, Joie.

Nice to see a thread from you TimmiT. Reminds me that I should post something of the season. Nice Limacella, I've yet to come across one like that in it's prime.

Seems your side of town is putting on an orchid show. Out East Gippy I could only find some Drosera and Common Heath. A friend in Bendigo has been capturing the orchids out west and making me drool.

Nice flowers Shroom Detective, thanks for sharing. The hibiscus brings back memories of a garden from my childhood. Unfortunately I can't grow many of the plants that captured my affections back then. The climate where I now live is too harsh. As for your question about spider mites, I didn't notice any when I was trying to photograph the orchids. They looked in good health. Here are some other orchids I found last year (or maybe the year before... sometime in the past anyway).

Nodding Greenhood Orchid (Pterostylis nutans) and Waxlip Orchid (Glossodia major)



I'd love to see what you've found this season Karode. Have you been out hunting in NZ yet? I love finding interesting plants on my hunts, especially  little orchids. I don't find them very often though. This year my goal is to find Caleana major. Bendigo has an orchid show every year but I've never been. Hopefully i'll be free this year to check it out.
