|Hard Fungus on Stump|
|Orange Fungus on Dead Tree|
As I had expected, the cold definitely affects the type and number of fungi fruiting bodies to be observed. Hardy 'shelf' fungi such as these are fine. Neither are named, as you can see, I'm still a complete beginner at matching what I see, to the names in books.
I thought the orange one might be a curry punk (Piptoporus australiensis) but it is now turning white on top so I may have to research it some more.
They may go dormant, I haven't had the chance to see that yet, but I will try to record that, by way of regular photo shoots.
I haven't seen any of the varieties of ink caps for more than a week and the Stropharians and Lysurus fruiting bodies tend to be much smaller than the warm weather efforts.
