Fungi in the Otways

Postby MickyB » Sat 23 Apr, 2016 12:28 pm

We spent a few days in the Otway Ranges but unfortunately there wasn't much water going over any of the waterfalls. There was a lot of fungi though and it made the trip worthwhile.

Amazing!

You might like to keep it a secret, as too many visitors will disturb a site, but are you able to say whereabouts this is? :)

The photos were taken at a couple of locations. Some of them were taken on the track to the first drop of Upper Chapple Falls (off Lavers Hill - Cobden Road). I won't mention the other location on here but will PM you with details.

Cheers mate :D . I'll have a good look at that site tonight.

Here are a couple of other sites about fungi that may be of interest to people

Cheers GPS. It's amazing the fungi you can find when you actually look for them. A mate from Tassie (and a member of this forum) sent me some photos of green fungi he found last week. Stunning!!!
I will try to ID all of these but unfortunately my knowledge with fungi isn't great. I think the first one in the second lot of photos (the white one on the log) is White Brain -Tremella fuciformis.
