Fungi: Pleurotus purpureo-olivaceus
Over the past few yeas I have photographed many fungi in Tasmania and wanted to start being a little more thorough re ID-ing and recording them, so expect to see lots of random posts now and then as I try and sort through my fungi photos and present them in a somewhat useful manner! Most of the ID notes are from the Tasmanian Fungi field guide by Genevieve Gates and David Ratkowsky.
Todays specimen – Pleurotus purpureo-olivaceus. Found at St Columba Falls in north east Tasmania back in June 2019.
This species is mostly found in the typical autumn months, ie April-May-June, growing on rotted wood.
