Fungi at Mt Worth

Mount Worth State Park protects a remnant of the forests that once covered the western Strzelecki Ranges. Tall wet forests of Mountain Ash, Mountain Grey Gum and Blackwood grow on the hills and slopes. In this environment the proliferation of fungi is stunning. Recent surveys by the Field Naturalists of Victoria have found over 40 different species. Below are some brilliant pictures take during the 2017 survey… how many would you have recognised as fungi?
