Brisbane Fungi


Phallus Indusiatus near Maiala Mt Glorious

One of my favourite things to do after a few days of rain is to check the mulch piles and ovals of my local parks to see if any interesting fungi have popped up.



I also at the first opportunity head to my favourite bush walks scouring the tracks on the lookout for any unusual and interesting fungi.

I love looking at Fungi reference books there are so many amazing fungi I would love to see one day, like the lattice or basket fungi, the earth star, the birds nest and any one of the illuminating ones.

Here are some of the Fungi I have come across in Brisbane.

I am a amateur when it comes to identifying Fungi madly flicking through reference books so I have undoubtedly misidentified some if you can help out with any misidentified or unidentified ones I would love to hear from you.  

Finding This Aseroe rubra growing on a ground up tree stump has been the most exciting Fungi I have discovered in my own backyard.
