Stump Fungi


Dryad’s saddle (Polyporus squamosus) is the most evicent but the phots shows others. The white tips of Candlesnuff fungus  (Xylaris hypoxylon) are peeking through the moss.

There could be two other in the  Xylaria family. The fat black fingers to the right could be Dead man’s fingers (Xylaria polymorpha) and the slimmer ones Dead Moll’s  fingers (X longipes). They had a flexible connection so when rechecked they are all Xylaria longipes.

Ivy (Hedera helix) is trailing across the moss (Isothecium mysuroides)

In Jesmond Old Cemetery the grass had Bonnet fungi, some in troops with a lilac tint in the sunshine. Could be Brownedge Bonnet?


Grooved bonnet (Mycena polygramma)?
