Beenak Long Tooth Beenakia dacostae<br />
Lifer and lucky find of the day. These small whiite mushrooms were at the end of a loose line of similar mycena but attracted my eye due to a slightly different shape. I only took one distant shot (as the area looked unfriendly) and onyl found out what they were on the laptop at home. Only one species in the genus and getting scarce now as original non-eucalyptus rainforest shrinks.

    Normal people would look at that and seriously wonder what makes someone do such a happy dance.
