Same Spot

After successful relocating the Jelly Babies, our eyes were on alert for new stuff of course! I mean a lot can pop up in just a few days right.

New fungi would definitely be emerging. Like this little hairy guy!
Tiny red beauty!
Did you know wolf’s milk was colorful? Me either but the Wolf’s-Milk Slime Mold (Lycogala epidendrum) is the common name. Definitely a weird name especially since they are pink to reddish orange.

Here was our first really exciting find of the day, the Violet Coral Fungus (Clavaria zollingeri)!
Once we saw the first clump, we saw probably a dozen or more clumps!

There sizes ranged from a nub to the tall one in the first photo of about two centimeters.

A close view!

The Purple Coral Fungus has only been observed three times near Houston in Texas on iNat! One observation in Oklahoma. There are 3509 observations mostly in the eastern US. .

More to come tomorrow from Caddo NG!
