Nascent saprotrophic fungi
Nascent saprotrophic fungi
Newly emerging fruiting bodies of a saprotrophic fungus, probably a species of the Pholiota genus, or possibly Armillaria. Saprotrophic fungi break down dead vegetation and are essential in the rotting process, but some species such as Armillaria mellea (the Honey or Bootlace Fungus) attack living trees, eventually killing them, and are a major parasite.
