I go up this little valley as often as I can as there are many different types of fungi up here, These Jews ears were on a dead tree beside the track.
Apricot waxgill with a dry cap, 0.6-1.1 cm diam. x 2-2.5 cm height. Apricot coloured gills and stipe. Gills attached, slightly decurrent. Stipe tapering at base, 2 mm diam. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
White-cream coral fungus in a large clump (5 x 5.5 cm) with pointed tips. Branching structure in multiples >2 (often 3). Small multi-angled spores about 4 x 4.4 micron. On soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Hygrophorus involutus with pale pink gills and fruit body with hint of pink tones, pink colour fading with maturity. I have seen this species in two other colour variations, with pure white gills and apricot-yellow gills. On soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Beautiful fungus with a very strong mushroom smell.The smell attracted my attention otherwise I would not have found it.
Initial thought was that it was Latiporus sulphurus. But have been convinced otherwise.
