A feast of fungi

Visit to the Otways, Part 2. This time the fungi we found at Blanketleaf Picnic Ground yesterday - an unexpected bonanza. Even though we've had rain I hadn't expected the fungi to still be so prolific and varied. The IDs are suggestions only - I'm happy to be corrected.

Pretty Mouth Calostoma fuscum
Jellybaby Leotia lubrica
Black Earth Tongue Geoglossum  sp.
Coral Fungi
Coral Fungi
Pluteus sp.
Update: Galerina unicolor. Thanks Helen.

Great stuff Boobook, the snail too. How I wish we could get some of that rain up here to liven things up. We get 3 or 4 mm if we're lucky.

These are amazing. People who drive along the Great Ocean Road just don't see the details that are there underfoot. We must go slower, stop and walk into the forests and open our eyes. I was down at Airey's Inlet the other day and the bush looks marvellous.
