I am a geek. A complete and total geek. An exceedingly happy nature geek. See, I am making it my goal this year to learn…funguses. Yes, that’s right FUNGUS!
Fungus and mosses grow everywhere. (Darn! Mosses! I need to learn more about those too.)
Just imagine how happy I was to find this identification guide:
This fungi (one that I personally think is quite beautiful) is a Mossy Maze Polypore.
According to the US Forest Service “only 5 percent of the of the estimated 1.5 million species of fungi have been described, and their exact roles and interactions in ecosystems are largely unknown.”
Common people! We got work to do!
More fungi news tomorrow!
