;) was still in bo"nn"et mode ;) thx, Mark
I like it Lars. It's spelled with a single 'N'
Had to correct the ID...
Wow! How different.
Thank you, Daniel
Yes they are the same genus Lars. These things are actually true fungi - not like slime molds. They are saprophitic, have chitin in their walls and produce spores. Cool mushrooms! There's a wiki entry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhizopus and one similar to yours I found a few months ago http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/119...
Is this a similar type, Argy?
Thanks António - and thanks a lot for the ID, Argy
They're actually quite beautiful in close-up.
