Who: Debbie Viess (amanitarita)

No specimen available

In a lovely riverside wet subtropical forest, nice and fungally productive despite the damnable drought!

I traveled clear round the world just to return home to CA conditions in OZ!

Mostly tiny saprobic things fruiting, but oh, the diversity and delicate details!

Thanks Ian, for showing us your special places like this one.

stem is all wrong for crinis-equi.

I also looked at your images after the fact, and observed that aerial rhizomorph. cool fruiting strategy!

was (among?) the first described Marasmius species with an aerially rhizomorphic habit; as in growing above ground in webs of wiry stem-like material to catch falling debris for mid-air consumption. This looks like one, rhizomorphless Marasmius on the ground.
