So, the purest accident! And it ‘settled’ just at the center of the fungi. Thank you for your comment as always.
then crawl onto some available surface to produce their fruit bodies. I have seen them use other types of hard, woodrotting mushrooms before as a fruiting surface, but it is probably just random or ones in proximity to their feeding grounds.
nice photos BTW; thanks so much for sharing your corner of the myco-world.
