Micro Fungi in Tree Holes spotted by LaurenZarate San Cristóbal, Chiapas, Mexico 36 minutes ago

The other night I was looking for spiders in tiny tree holes formed by now missing branchlets. These holes were around 1 cm in diameter on Cypress Trees. To my surprise I began to notice that each little tree hole had rows of tiny fungal discs or cups, most circling the edges of the holes. These little fungi were not to be found anywhere else on the trees. They are yellow to orange in color with striped borders, flat to slightly cupped in shape. They varied in diameter from 0.2 to 1 mm in size. I suspect that these are specifically adapted to grow in small tree holes. All the row of trees I was looking at had these fungi only around the edges of the holes. We have all heard of the specialized fauna that live in our navel cavities, this is something similar for trees. Pictures 1 to 4 show close-ups of the fungi and their position within the hole. Picture shows a hole farther away, but the tiny discs are visible. Picture 6 shows a tree trunk with 3 holes, when expanded, all have the fungi inside.

Signature Spider spotted by girishanagha Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India 43 minutes ago

This female was about 8-12 mm long, it built a web with a zig-zag stabilimentum somewhat resembling letters, so commonl called Signature Spider. This mature female was resting at the centre of the orb with her head facing downwards. When disturbed indirectly, it went through the hole (an opening at the centre of the orb) and exited on the other side of the plane of the web.

2019 National Moth Week! July 20-28

Project Noah partners with National Moth Week each year to celebrate the beauty and life cycles of moths.

Moths play a key role in ecosystems as pollinators and as a food source for nocturnal insectivores like owls, birds and bats. Our Moths of the World Mission celebrates the diversity and ecological importance of moths. Join a global citizen science project to help identify all moths from July 20-28!
