Here I will document the various Fungi I find growing on the farm. Fascinating in their own right with some really cool names and colour's.


Tremella mesenterica is a common jelly fungus in the Tremellaceae family of the Agaricomycotina. It is most frequently found on dead but attached and on recently fallen branches, especially of angiosperms, as a parasite of wood decay fungi in the genus Peniophora.

Sarcoscypha austriaca commonly referred to as Scarlet Elfcup (and the macroscopically almost identical Ruby Elfcup Sarcoscypha coccinea) appears in winter on dead twigs in damp, shady places, usually partly buried in moss.
