photographing and learning about wildlife
This is a web-like fungus that I found anchored to a living very small tree trunk and two Heliconia leaves. Apparently two individual spores landed where the leaves and tree came together and grew from there. I sent these photos to "Fungi of Ecuador" where it was identified - "Mycelia corsa like those are usually formed by the gestrales group (puff balls)."
Secondary forest growth in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador (700 masl).
This is very similar to the one just posted by Zlatan Celebic here: https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/90... Something brand new for me.
