The Fungi world (110) : Candlesnuff fungus by Mark Billiau.

The Fungi world (110) : Candlesnuff fungus

To my regret, the high season of the fungi is over, but now that the snow has melted momentarily, I still found a few species in the forest that survived surprisingly well the recently snow and cold wave.

Here’s the first one : a few Candlesnuff fungi. It’s a very small but conspicuous species with a branched antler like form.

Can be found all year round, but most commonly in autumn.
The specimens in the shot are only 0,5cm high !

Dutch name : Geweizwam
German name : Geweihförmige Holzkeule
Latin name : Xylaria hypoxylon

Solche Pilzaufnahmen bei uns zu machen ist zur Zeit unmöglich,30cm Neuschnee.Da muss man sich mit dem Archiv vergnügen.Sehr schöne warme Farbtöne.Im vorderen Bereich fehlt mir die Schärfe Mark,dass sollte bei Pilzaufnahmen so sein.
LG Fred

Amazing looking fungi, like dead mans fingers coming out of that vivid green foliage.
Superb exposure and details Mark

Wunderschönes Makro in tollen Farben, Grüessli Susanne

very primeval and bizarre looking, as it seems to be made of bone or horn tissue! if i were the scientist who discovered it (yeah right, keep on dreamin' ; )), i would have called it the "dinosaur tooth"! great capture and an eye-opener for me who's never once seen this kind of fungus before! lg, sabine.

Andrea Sagawe, 10.12.2010 at 10:09h

never would have thought this was a fungus...!
Excellent shot!

My first thought, when I saw this, was antlers.
It is amazing what shape fungi can have.
Well seen and captured.
best wishes

Eine sehr schöne Mini-Welt stellst Du hier vor. Diese Pilzart kenne ich garnicht. Wie immer hast Du eine qualitätvolle Arbeit geliefert.
