The purpose of this group it to provide a photographic record of fungi species found within the Macedon Ranges. Images should be sharp, close, and include features necessary for identification such as cap detail, gills/pores/spines and stem detail where possible. Not all fungi can be readily identified to species level without the aid of detailed microscopic examination and it is also not necessarily easy to identify the genus. We wish to record all species found in the ranges, both named and unnamed. While it is not intended that this be a "post your image for identification" site, efforts will be made to correct or offer names where possible. For areas to the west of Woodend see the Wombat Forest - Fungi group.
Several images including close up of the pinkish brown spores caught up in the gills. Superficially like Cheimonophyllum candidissimum which has white spores and also like Crepidotus variabilis which has a watery texture and is not as furry with gills that quickly turn brown.
Several images including the tiny teeth on the underside. This species is Steccherinum ochraceum, could the database be updated to include it please. The upper surface is not actually green, that is an extensive algal growth.
This is Multiclavula mucida, please add to the database. This species was not the intended target of these images but is a good example of why you should look very closely when out hunting fungi. The two suspended clubs in the third image are attached to the wood beneath the Deconica horizontalis cap, not to the cap itself.
