Bird's Nest Fungus - Revisited


Yes, 129 peridioles in this modest sized cup that isBNF_mucous the Bird's Nest Fungus Nidula candida. Too be sure, I found one that seemed particularly full. It was so full, I wondered just how many a cup could hold and then of
course, had to count it (you can't just walk away from something that
intriguing). Please enjoy the portion of  sticky mucous that helps to make for a very adhesive peridiole and yes, it was like cleaning out a large nostril with a Q-tip.
