Author's notes

Growing in areas where fallen timber had burnt, seen about 3 weeks after the wildfire of 15 Sept. The first photo is taken from a few cm away and I think shows some short white hyphae fringing the orange blobs, the second has a leaf for scale and the 3rd gives the context. The white is ash and indicates the former location of a burnt-away log. I assume this is an earlier stage of development of the same thing as my other sighting from Brogo Fire Trail which had had an extra 5 weeks to develop.

One of the early "Fire Fungi". Often seen growing on old campfire sites. Comprised of numerous tiny fruit bodies to 1mm across usually surrounded with a white mycelial margin just as Jackie has described.

Great, thanks Teresa. I didn't hold out much hope of getting a name for that one.
