Yay ( I think), there is another Dog Vomit Slime Mould (Fuligo Septica) in the front garden. Not as impressive as the first two, but at least I got a picture of its initial stage.
The Field Book that the Perth Urban Bushland Fungi (PUBF) group has collated includes some amazing fungi and moulds of different shapes and colours. What is even more fascinating, is the common names that are assigned based on the characteristics and appearance.
There is a disc shaped fungus that has appeared in the sheep manure that Dad gave me, but I’ll have to get a photograph of that when I have more light and less rain.
I can see why groups such as PUBF are active. The science of fungi or mycology in your own back yard (or front yard) is great fun. Apparently the best time to see fungi in the Perth region is “after the onset of substantial Autumn rains”, i.e. now!
