When I saw this pic I knew it had to be saved for today :)
I think the boring correct name is Tapetum lucidum, the reflective layer on the back of eye.
Sometimes we have to let the mystery of life become part of our lives
A cluster of tiny orange spheres on fallen branch on ground. Largest 7mm diam. Turning khaki brown over several days. Internal spore mass concolorous with colour of older spheres. Spores not smooth.
A Bolete, but with dark cap and stipe, and light coloured pore surface . Found under beech Nothofagus trees.
Large mushroom (6.5 cm & larger) with a greyish tan cap covered in fibres with dark brown gills. Young mushrooms are lighter in colour with pink/brown gills and have a very shaggy appearance. The fibres clump together to form pointed clusters of fibres which disappear as the fruiting body increased in size and ages. Stipe also appears scaly and fibrous which also disappears with age. Found in large numbers along track edge in more open areas where the bush is young and weedier. Not Lacrymaria lacrymabunda (the young mushrooms in this species are not shaggy and smaller). Possibly Lacrymaria asperospora (Psathyrella asperospora )?
Rounded shaggy mushroom about 3cm diameter and 4cm height. Gills pale grey with small whitish projections along the edges.Spores arranged in grid pattern on the surface of the gills.
Growing on soil, but heavy mulch, so could be from wood. Spore print too faint to read. Spores appear dark in micro view.
Spores arranged in grid pattern on the gill surface. Spores large and covered in short spines.?
