The spring fungi season has begun.
Today found over 27 species of fungi….many surprises….and just had a great time.
This is called Black Witch’s Butter…a species of Tramella….when it dries it’s almost invisible as it’s about 90% water when hydrated. With a good rain shower or snow melt off the jellies swell up and are visible again.
I got a surprise once I came home and loaded the images off my camera and saw the spiders, fungi beetle larva, thrips and whatever else was hiding here. Didn’t help that I had raindrops dripping off my nose and fogging up my glasses.
In this location I found:
Black Witch’s Butter
Yellow Witch’s Butter
False Turkey Tail
Black Jelly Oyster
UNK cucumber-scented mushroom
