What a Fungi!

Posted by Lorac Saturday, 6 March 2010

While out for a walk the other day I happened to notice a log just off in the bush that had fungus growing on it. I have often gathered the Artists Conks before for the grand children to draw on so thought I would go in and take a look. The conks were too small to take but with the conks on the tree were some other very interesting fungus. The Artist Conks are on the top and the colourful one below is a Trametes Versicolor or Turkey Tail that has seen better times. All of these show the fungi much better when enlarged.

These were harder to identify. I think they are Honey Mushroom but may be Armillaria luteobubalina. Look a lot like pancakes actually.

This I could not identify but it sure looks ugly! Well worthy of a photo.

This was several more of these kinds and they were all on one piece of log about 4 feet long. I think it is rotting away nicely and will join the earth in no time! Nature taking care of nature.
Day One is starting a new meme, Photo Time. Right now it is a pic of anything! Go take a look!


  1. Ooh, I rather like the pancakes! I don't ever recall seeing mushrooms around here in Alberta. I either have my eyes shut, or I think the lack of trees and water might have something to do with it!

  3. Hi Lorac

    we see similar fungi in the rainforest and they seem to harden...
    What does artists conk that the real name?

    At home I have had some vivid yellow or brown powdering stuff appear in the garden overnight. If you spray it with the hose the air is filled with what I imagine are very fine spores puff out like a smoke screen.

    Happy days

  7. Frostbite and Sunburn - I didn't realize that. Perhaps out in the forests?
    Delwyn Artists Conk is the real name. On the top there is a hard shell but underneath it is some what soft and velvety. If you take a stick or a pencil your can draw on there and it will harden permanently. The grand kids love to draw on them and then put them around the yard for "decoration". The fungus you describe sounds like what we call Puff Balls here. When it is young, before it gets to the powder stage, it is edible. I don't know if yours is the same. They can grow quite large in the right circumstances.

  9. Sandra, thanks ! I am glad you like them. I found them really interesting!

  11. Interesting!!! The ones in the top picture look a bit like clam shells.

    I've never seen those before.

  12. Ann Says:
  13. Nice pictures of the fungi, that last one is so ugly, I have to say, it is beautiful. Amazing how many different types there are.

  15. Greetings Lorac,
    For a brief moment I thought I might just be looking at the legendary 'Gooey Duck', in your second photograph. Now, that brings back West Coast memories:-)
    Anyway, interesting pictures and I can't see 'mushroom' for improvement...
    Have a good weekend, eh.
    Kind wishes, Gary

  20. Used to take the school children to study them, they made terrific drawings, subjects of poetry, and wonderful embroidery. Hugs..

  21. I like the variety of fungi you found! I'll have to pay more attention next time I'm in the forest.
