Wrinkled Crust, Phlebia radiata

Split Porecrust, Schizopora paradoxa

Both found on fallen wood at our local nature reserve this weekend. Identified for me by our fungi fanatic, Vivien.

Both pictures were taken using a Wild M8 stereo zoom microscope with my Canon Powershot S50 mounted on one eyepiece. These are single images, i.e. not stacked,

Though we lean upon the same balustrade, the colours of the mountain are different.

Great images, especially without stacking. Lighting and specimen alignment are excellent! Very nice. :D

Scale bars much appreciated, by the way.

Great shots there Graham, the last one I have seen many times but never knew the name of it until now, thanks! :D . Quite a common fungus on dead and decaying wood it seems, see it all the time around here. :D

Very beautiful looking fungi Graham. You captured them very nicely. They are rather small according to your scale :shock:

Nice! They look like aerial shots of some forbidding landscapes!
