Author's notes

Growing on a charred stick in an area of forest that was only lightly burnt, not seriously fried, as a fair bit of it was 7 months ago. There were the usual little brown jobs around too, but I passed on those. Nothing very exciting in the post-fire fungi field. But then we didn't cover a lot of ground.

If the fire wasn't too severe the mycelium of this species would have been protected within the wood. I'm so glad you passed on those little brown jobs!!! Are you finding any cup fungi or that orange Pyronema, though if the fire was seven months ago this latter species has most probably finished? There's a whole suit of fungi that you see as a result of fires. Then it usually takes about five years for the array of species to return to the original ones that were there before the fires.

Hi Pam, It was a bit of a flying visit, so we didn't see many fungi. I did put up a couple of Pyronema sightings from a month or so post-fire, but it looked like pretty transient stuff. No sign of it on the recent trip. I'd like to get back out there for more of a poke around before the veg gets too thick, so watch this space (but not too closely, it might be a while). I vaguely recall this species needs a name change - should I fix it, and if so what to?

Jackie that would be fabulous if you could adjust this name to Trametes coccinea please. Hopefully this week I'll be ablet to work through what's going wrong when I try and change names. I worked out yesterday I've travelled well over 4000 km in less than four weeks. I was wondering why I was so short of time and becoming muddle headed!!

Consider it done. Sounds like you need a break.
