    It looks like a lichen with fruiting bodies, maybe a Peltigera.

      Thanks Harold, trying out my new EM5 ii. Nice little camera, and works well. Shame it does not have the ProCap features...*

            I'm fairly sure it's a Ganoderma, one of the fungi showing promise as anti-cancer.

              Panelllus stypticus The Bitter Oysterling

              I photographed this yesterday in a local woodland. It was on the stump of a deciduous tree.

                Cobalt Crust Terana caerulea

                I have seen many thousands of crust fungus colonies over many years but this is the first time I have seen this blue one. It can be a deeper shade of blue.

                Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/50 f5.6 ISO 1600 hand-held.

                The stereo is crosseye.

                      It's a Grevillea.

                      I just clicked on the image and choose the option for a Google search.

                          I have tried that to get names for some of my images but I usually just get back my own.

                            Hyaloscypha leuconica A Tiny Ascomycete Fungus

                            I am fairly sure of the genus, less so of the species, but I may get confirmation from an expert soon. This was on a piece of rotten wood in a dense colony, which i initially though was an alga. These nest-like fruiting bodies are something like 0.5mm across (the largest ones)

                            I had not seen this genus before.

                            I took only location shots, handing on the material for a second opinion.

                            The stereo is crosseye.

                            Olympus EM-1 (manual mode), Laowa 25mm f2.8 2.5x-5x ultra-macro at x2.5 and 118, triple TTL flash hand-held.

                              It was whilst packing my previous 60mm macro lens several days ago to photograph these tiny 3mm wide fungi when I noticed it was bust (luckily during the BF reduction period), so were the first subject for my replacement lens.

                              • David,

                                The experts say there are two similar species but I have yet to see the rarer one recorded.

                                Today is our last official group foray of the year. We will find mostly crusts but probably also some slime moulds.
