Now that it is fall the puffballs are starting to come out. Is suspect these might be pigskin puffballs.

These puffballs were growing on an ancient dead tree stump that looks like its been hollowed out by various wood boring beetles.

Next up is a sad sight. These are dried up chicken of the woods, I wish I had found these the month before when they were ripe.

Here is another variety of trametes versicolor, more of a purple brownish color.

Next to the turkey tail this tremella's lunchbox aka Stereum hirsutum. They call it tremella's lunchbox because the white jelly fungus Tremella fuciformis usually grows out of it after a rain.

Here is a rare find around here, honey fungus aka Armillaria mellea.

These ones look like they dried out before they could fully reveal their gills. Sadly I didn't get the chance to harvest them with gills so I could take a long exposure of their bioluminescent gills.

Here is a strange slightly dried up UFO.

These are the gills of the UFO, kind of reminds me of a deer mushroom but it doesn't have pink gills and isn't large enough.

Now for some tiny UFOs.

These guys were not even as large as a penny in diameter. So far after searching for hours I am still not sure what they could be...

That's all for this #fungifriday thanks for looking :-)
