Cortinarius archeri Purple Fungi Oxley River

    Newer Older

    Diversity in the fungal kingdom is immense and quite underappreciated and neglected compared to other areas of biodiversity.

    Many fungi are of critical importance in the function of ecosystems and often live in symbiosis with plant roots providing nutrients to the plant.

      Wow, amazing color. Great find. Definitely never seen one of this specimen in our North Norfolk forests, UK. No rain forest here, though plenty rain at the moment!
