I put in a 2nd collections of this species from last year – this time without the red hue.

Despite the red, that is a good shot Andreas.

It does resemble some of Dan’s collections a bit (by the way, excellent Psathyrella collection, Dan!)
Dan Molter’s Psathyrella spp.

Inski, that secotioid Tympanella is really interesting!

Interesting Psathyrella species,

Macroscopically it reminds me of this completely unrelated mushroom from New Zealand!

not a bad photo

and a pretty mushroom. It looks similar to the tiny hairy psathyrellas I have been finding on wood, pnly browner.

thanks, but

the fungus is great – the picture is not, unfortunately. I had to place my box behind the fruitbody to obtain shadow, as it was growing in driect sunlight. And my box is red and so is the background and the whole foto got a slight reddish hue. Very annoying!

What a great picture!
