Crepidotus is a genus of fungi in the family Crepidotaceae. Species of Crepidotus all have small, convex to fan-shaped sessile caps and grow on wood or plant debris. The genus has been studied extensively, and monographs of the North American,[3] European and Neotropical species have been published.
Crepidotus means cracked ear.
Members of this genus are small, convex to fan-shaped, and sessile. Species have cheilocystidia[8] Spore prints are yellow-brown to brown. All species of Crepidotus are known to be secondary decomposers of plant matter; most are saprobic on wood. Little is known about the ebility of various species; the usually small and insubstantial specimens discourage mycophagy.

Hi Stone, Impressive image of these fungi. Super light with natural colours. Nice composition and POV. Wonderful details with clarity. I like the texture of these fungi and their forms. They look like sea shells but soft to touch. Best regards
