FungiFriday: Purple and Brown

in FungiFriday8 months ago

Cheers to #FungiFriday, mushroom lovers!

I found some mushrooms today that I think are species of the genus Marasmius based on their phenotypic features. This was also my entry for the #FungiFriday hosted by @ewkaw.





The scientific name for this fungus is M. haematocephalus , commonly known as the mauve parachute or purple pinwheel. Most the genus Marasmius have parachute-like caps, but this one is purple and pink on the juvenile mushroom.



This seems to be the M. fulvoferrugineus species; whose common name is the brown parachute. The sole physical distinction between this fungus and M. haematocephalus is that it is larger in size and has a pale brown hue on the cap.




All of the images here are my own work, taken with Xiaomi POCO NFC smartphone and an assembled external macro lens.


Cool photos, I like this bizarre mood that these mushrooms create 🤗🍷👌👌
