Verdigris agaric can be distinguished from the Blue Roundhead by the presence of an Annulus in the former.
I found both species in each others proximity.
Growing on woodchips
Stropharia caerulea can best be distinguished from S. aeruginosa by the absence of an annula in the former.
Found on wouldchips, in the proximity of S. aeruginosa.
feeding on hoverfly (Eristalis nemorum)
larvae - bastaardrupsen
Found on Galeopsis tetrahit (Common Hemp-nettle)
Parasitic fungus on an old appletree
A rare native species in my country, so I'm glad to find it in my garden.
Cordyceps militaris (who's Dutch name means 'Caterpillar killer') that lives on butterfly pupa's.
I keep wondering why so many insects that are native both in the Netherlands/Flanders, and in Great Britain, do have a Dutch name, but no English one. This hoverfly is a very common species in the UK (according to Wikipedia), but is just 'some kind of hoverfly'... while we call him 'lemon dangling hoverfly' (there is also the 'common dangling hoverfly, that is very similar).
This bird seems to believe that, even with this snow, he will be able to find some ants underneath...
Gal - Gall
Years ago, I found a Dog Vomit's Slime Mould in my garden. For years I didn't see a slime mould (didn't look for them really), but yesterday there were several of them in the hay-meadow in our garden. Not the colorfull one of last time, but a species that doesn't seem to have an English name. (The Dutch name could be translated as 'greater chalk-foam').
It starts as a pale yellow slime mold, that gradually fades to cream white, and end as a blackened mass.
Last year, I found some firebugs feasting on a juicy piece of spidermeat, but those bugs are merely vegetarian, and apart from lindenseeds, they are fond of the seeds of Malvaceae, like this hollyhock.
