Splendid Waxcap

Monday Mushroom #97

There are a number of species of bright red waxcap growing in grassy places in the UK. I'm guessing these ones might be Hygrocybe splendidissima on the basis of their large size and the twisted, irregular-shaped stipe.

Pleasing Fungus Beetle

Monday Mushroom #95

Here is a pleasing fungus beetle Erotylus Spp? having a lovely time on some Pycnoporus sanguineus fruiting bodies in the Bolivian cloud forest.

The pleasing fungus beetles - Erotylidae - is a large family of beetles. Many of which - though by no means all of them - feed on fungi.

Shifting Sands

Fencepost of the Week #97

And so it came to pass that the wise did plant their fenceposts in the soggy earth, and the posts did spring forth with all the fecund things of the damp ground - of the mosses and of the lichens and of the frogspawns, each in their season, and it was good. But the fool did plant his fenceposts in the dry sand and the posts they did remain bare - shamefull in their nakedness. And the sands did shift so that the fence would hold niether cattle nor flocks, but only the giraffe would be by it contain'd. And the people saw and did think him a ninny.
