Observation 8014: Xeromphalina tenuipes (Schwein.) A.H. Sm.
When: 2007-05-04
No herbarium specimen

Notes: These were growing in an area of poor light and damp underfoot. There were several groups, but this group was the least damaged by ? attackers.
Fill flash and reflected light was used and the colours balanced.White balance was corrected with grey card. Saturation is true. Some noise from enlargement and no noise reduction employed. All shots taken at f32 and exposures times were max up to bulb setting. Nikon Macro 105mm f2.8 set at f32 and Nikon D300 in live view at 100% for sharpness adjust in manual mode. SB800 provided fill flash at -2 stops in macro mode. Depth of field was calculated to be 2/3rds in. The Fungi were not touched or handled and there did not appear to be any distintive odour.

Looks Close and good enough for a start in naming. Many Thanks for your efforts and help in my struggling attempts tp show Aus that not many see.

that it shouldn’t have stayed un-IDed for this long, but I can’t settle on a genus.
