  1. Paul, this is seriously extraordinary. What a fantastic species, and captured so beautifully.
    Also, highly exceptional for any species to have a central role in the Netherlands.

      1. I didn't even notice! Truth is, the depth of field of smartphone cameras is very useful for fungi. Posted 2 years ago

  3. Today's Facebook post:

    The Moor Club (Clavaria argillacea) is a species of mushroom that produces beautiful, clavate (club-shaped) fruiting bodies. It can be found in the U.K. and in numerous countries in Europe, where it grows in acidic soils, along with moss and heather. It is presumed to be a decomposer of grass and moss, and may have a mycorrhizal relationship with heather. {Spotted in the Netherlands by Paul Dirksen} #JungleDragon #MoorClub #Clavariaargillacea
