Description

The weather was a cold but dry 40° without having rained for a few days.

I had found P. Gelatinosum next to a marsh on a nursery log with almost an impenetrable layer of snags surrounding it. Lysichiton was about the only thing nearby still thriving in the cold weather. Bunches and bunches of ochre to purple ramaria were heavily prevalent as well.

Description

The caps on these mushroom were about 2.5 mm in diameter. I wasn't sure I could even capture one in a photo! growing with lichens, moss.

I am trying to get spore, but I don't have high hopes, these are very small.

Open gills, thin stalk.

These are so small I could handle them.

Growing from rotting Oak branches that were on the ground.

Basidiomycota /bəˌsɪdi.ɵmaɪˈkoʊtə/ is one of two large phyla that, together with the Ascomycota, constitute the subkingdom Dikarya (often referred to as the "higher fungi") within the kingdom Fungi. More specifically the Basidiomycota include these groups: mushrooms, puffballs, stinkhorns, bracket fungi, other polypores, jelly fungi, boletes, chanterelles, earth stars, smuts, bunts, rusts, mirror yeasts, and the human pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus. Basically, Basidiomycota are filamentous fungi composed of hyphae (except for yeasts), and reproducing sexually via the formation...
