Significant sighting

Pam noted:
12 Jun 2020

This appears to be the first recording of this genus in the Budawang Coast Nature Map area. It would seem therefore that it is uncommon.

Author's notes

Very tiny caps emerging from the side of a fallen log. Refer to the finger for scale.

These delightful little Mycena like fungi appear to be a species of Xeromphalina. I've just tried to add it to the species list - but something is not working!!! This is a significant find as there doesn't appear to be any records of this genus in the Budawant Coast Nature Map records. Well done!!

Thanks Pam!
I almost missed it, just happened to be processing some firewood nearby.

So tiny!
