With the recent rains, and cooling temperatures, I have been noticing lots of examples of mushrooms and fungus that have suddenly erupted into the world above. Most of the fungus plant is down beneath the surface, and it is only the fruiting body that sticks its head up for the world to see. The fact that they don’t need sunlight, allows them to live in dark nooks in the forest, that are usually inhabited by mosses and the few other plants that can tolerate very low light. Here are a few of the fungi I have spotted over the last few days.
