Under a pure podocarp forest [mix of Kahikatea and Totara]
In quite large numbers under Kahikatea.
Lacked apical 'beak' at top, and also lacked the ring markings seen on other local examples.
Growing on sloughed limbs of Kahikatea. A very strong representation of the species in this Domain.
In association with the large mature pine tree nearby.
I think this is two laccaria growing together. What the photos are not showing is the subtle shade of purple that this was. Low light make it very difficult to capture.
Just one single solitary fungi body.
Growing next to regenerating bush, close by was cabbage tree.
This was in a separate area to previous coral shots. I did wonder if this was the immature version of it.
There was quite a large mass of this growing on the bank / ditch. But due low light couldn't get a unblurry shot.
Associated with regenerating bush. Wasn't clear what it was actually symbiotic as only one and not really close to any particular tree.
But looked really neat!
I'm not 100% sure were I took this, so either associated with manuka, and regen bush, or could be close to a pine.
This was in the exact same location as these russulas a month ago.
They were growing under a manuka tree, but was other regenerating species in the vicinity.
They had no taste, and clearly not really nasty as I accidentally swallowed instead of spitting out !
Hongos de repisa (Orden Polyporales
These are everywhere in Huntly and surrounds at the moment. These were under a manuka tree.
Took a spore print from others I have found, and it is a like brownish (I think)
Background of spore print is white paper.
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...
