Artist's Description

Not the best image of a mushroom…but this is a tiny parasitic mushroom ON a mushroom.
Commonly called Powder Caps, Asterophora lycoperdoides are, for me, difficult to find as they grow on already black and rotted mushrooms……mainly Russula species and Lactarius mushrooms.
The only 2 times I’ve found this species I’ve been too late to see the gills………..the first after a harsh rainfall and this time after severe dryness.
Size only reaches 1-2cm….or 3/8-3/4 in height/width.
