And I thought the fungi had stopped here. This one was growing in a pot, with a white lace flower. I’ve never seen one before. It is about 8mm across.

I live in the Northern Rivers of NSW and this is where much of my photography comes from, apart from the obvious like volcanoes. You can see more of my work at

    G’day STEVE!

    This is a really great find. I think the Birds Nest types are an incredible family of fungi and have yet to find any in my travels.
    Well spotted, well photographed and well presented mate.


  • First one I’ve found – and in a pot plant (which apparently is quite common).
