Hi Trekkers,

Due to the system error of TrekNature and other unforeseen circumstances I had to completely miss January on this reborn website, so I can only continue my "New Year, New Species" series (I start every year with posting a photo of a species which is new to TN) now. Thank you very much for all those who commented my previous image, I visit all of your galleries as soon as I can.

My choice for opening my 2019 gallery is Snakeskin Brownie (Hypholoma dispersum Quél., syn. Hypholoma marginatum J. Schröt.), an uncommon LBM growing in coniferous forests, usually on decaying wood chips or needle litter (LBM = Little Brown Mushroom). Stem with the snakeskin-alike texture is the most important identification mark, and the species got its common English name (and the Hungarian one also) from this.

I found this species, the first time in my life, in last October in Gougane Barra Forest Park, a beautiful hemiboreal-like coniferous woodland dominated by Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis).

Photo: made in manual exposure mode, with the following settings: f/8, 1/15 sec., ISO 250, manual white balance (I see exif infos don't upload automatically to TN anymore).

Thanks for looking, have a prosperous new year!

Hello Laszlo!
It has been a long time, hope you are well.
This photo seems to be tanken out of my gallery, same fungi, same environment :)
It looks very much like Hypoloma fasciculare, maybe I was mistaken with my ident on Fasciculare... hypolomas are very tricky.
Best regards from me an Cris.

Hello Laszlo,

Regards and have a nice weekend,
