Forest floor fungi

Low on the No. 1 Line track where tawa trees are common, I came across these tiny fungi growing from the litter. I liked the late afternoon light so opted not to use the flash.

Still awaiting an identification from the NatureWatch experts. Genus Mycena.

I agree, EC. They were still there today, a little the worse for wear and looking rather drab without that lovely light.

What a beautiful model for a lamp that would make. Luminous and light.

Zhoen, yes, and self-reproducing too ;^)
