Lovely capture Glenn
Larry, I appreciate it!
Thanks Kim, I almost didn’t see them. That is a piece of mulch they are perched on! Interesting shapes I thought!
Thanks as always Kathy!
Oooo….NO idea! Ok…question…Can you go back and spray some water on these? How curiously awesome looking! Almost like a lichen’ized fungi of some sort. The mushroom cap there LOOKS like it might be a Mycena or a Marasmius species…but can’t be sure.The other species looks like it has lots of babies there with it. They KIND of remind me of a type of extremely ‘furry’ Coprinus species that grows on wood chips….can’t think of the name right off though. Ugh. Wish I could help you more here Glenn. LOVE it
Howdy Carla, was hoping you might have an idea. The babies and the large ones do not look like a mushroom. But the foreground shows what appears to be a cap growing out of the stuff. Wierd… Very tiny. Growing on a commercial mulch chip. Thanks for the look see and the kind remarks!
Wow Glenn. Instant appeal. Visually pleasing and so very interesting! It’s a Zinger :)
Thank you Maree. They are appealing, especially when I went macro on them. Thanks!

Thank you Sir!!
This is a great shot ! Beautiful find Glenn . ..Jozef
Thanks Jozef, appreciate your kind comment!
After reading Carla’s comments and yours about the wood chips, I’m thinking this might be a colony of bird’s nest fungi. ( I’m not exactly sure about the name) I found some last year that were full size, hairy, and funnel shaped with little “eggs” down in the bottom of the funnel. They were so unique and wonderful. I hope your can revisit this spot and watch to see what develops.
Hello Rusty, thanks for adding info to the investigation!! They are the strangest I’ve seen. Now that isn’t saying much. They are under the bushes, so I am going to mist them and keep an eye out. So small….
