Ruby Bonnets

It was a surprise to see Ruby Bonnets Mycena viscidocruenta fungi fruiting in February in the Wombat forest. This tiny species has a blood red cap with a dimple in the centre, pale red gills underneath, and a dark red stem to 35mm tall.

  1. These are beautiful We have similar sized ones that are orange. Do you know of a good local guide to fungi? We have quite a few different types, but it is so hard to work out what any of them are. Lisa
