Wolli Creek - Fungi and Slime Moulds - 9 May 2015

The fungi identifications here that I made are only amateurish - and I would appreciate any additions or corrections.

This was a field activity organised through the Sydney Fungal Studies Group Incorporated together with Wolli Creek Preservation Society. These photos show only a small proportion of what was found by the group on the day.

Above - This fungi was found near the exhaust stack for the M5. It is very worrying as it shows - rosecomb - or gills growing in the wrong place - on top of the cap. This abnormal morphogenesis is likely to be due to the presence of hydrocarbon contaminants.
