Author's notes

Unlike the hordes of this little fungus growing on ground/leaf litter, these ones were definitely growing out of rotting wood (an old Cassinia trinerva trunk). But the caps and the very long thin stipes look the same and it has the white rhizomorphs.

Jackie all those whitish rhizomophs, sometimes called pseudorhizomorphs, are actually psuedostipes. If you have a hand lense or magnifying glass have a look at the tips of some of these structures and you will see the tiniest of caps!! I find this species at times variable in colouration. Exquisite photos - see what's wrong with LBJs!

Wow, OK I'll check that out. Nothing wrong with LBJs if they have some distinctive feature like these guys, it's just the really similar ones I'm less keen on. Yep, these do look a little different to my other sighting (in about the same location), but maybe just because the caps on these are a bit less open.

Jackie I have to admit I agree with you re the ones that lack distinquishing features!

I went back for another look after 3 days of dry windy weather and even down in the bottom of the gully all the fruiting bodies had disappeared altogether. All I could find were some dessicated looking rhizomorphs on a log, on none of which could I find a tiny cap. Have to wait till next time they pop up.

Good luck. And when I say tiny, I mean tiny, not much wider than the 'rhizomorphs' themselves.
