Fungal fruiting bodies around Mudgeeraba Creek

On returning to the coast following my recent stay with Jonathon and Milly I took the opportunity to walk along the edge of Mudgeeraba Creek just outside the Hinterland Regional Park. This is a recreational area I have walked through on numerous occaisions in the past, so I had a fair idea of where one might find some pretty fungi...given the wet weather we have had in the last few weeks I was not disappointed...

A look at some of the habitat...
Mudgeeraba Creek

Buttress my day!

Fallen Fig tree in Mudgeeraba Creek

Standing dead Fig tree stump

Numerous galleries formed by stag beetle larvae

The following are all wood decay fungi and where I am confident of the species identification I have named the fungi accordingly, where it was not clear cut I have simply given the Genus.

Auricularia sp growing on standing dead Ficus sp stump

Bisporella sp on fallen Ficus sp leaf

Trametes hirsuta on fallen dead Ficus sp

Polyporus sp (possibly baduis) on dead branch possibly Syzygium francisii

Older fruiting bodies of Lenzites sp on Ficus sp stump

Hexagonia sp on Casuarina glauca limb

A different Hexagonia sp on fallen dead branch probably Ficus sp

Daldinia concentrica on fallen Ficus sp
