Congratulations António, this most interesting series has been voted Spotting of the Week:

"Just as plants and animals, fungi can spread through global commercial exchanges and have the potential to become invasive species. Such is the case of the Orange Pore Fungus (Favolaschia calocera), our Spotting of the Week. First described from Madagascar and South East Asia, and then observed in New Zealand in 1969, it was later reported in Australia, China, Kenya, and Reunion Island. In Europe it first appeared in Italy in 1999, and has since been found in several countries including France, Switzerland, the UK, Spain and Portugal. It is now considered an invasive species throughout much of its expanded range, and its spreading is being monitored as it is feared it may displace native fungi species. This spotting was praised for the quality of its documentation, including multiple shots of all aspects of the fungus".

Very beautiful!

@Thanks Mark,now iam realy interested in find the ID of the tree where the fungus was growing and iam going also to talk with my friends in the facebook mushrroms groups so we can compared our sittings , so we can gather more info about how they arrive here
@Thanks Amadeus.4 for your nice words
@Thanks Leuba normaly invasive species are bad for the new environement where they arrived,but other"invasions" are "absorved" without major problems(we have some bird invasive species that dont bring any problem) but we never know,the better is to not spread species arround the globe,is more safe for all,but they are beautiful :-)
@Yeah my friend iam the mushroom man,it would be a great cotume for Carnaval :) desgized of a Amanita Muscaria :-)

Muito bom, xará. Você é mesmo o "homem dos cogumelos"! :-)

It's such an invasive species - pity, because it's so attractive. Great photos Antonio.

Beautiful series António.
If it is 'new' there you might see it more often in future. It is everywhere here after only a few years.
I think originally from Madagascar? so you could have got it much earlier.

Thanks Ashley and Daniele for the nomination and comments

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
