Unfortunately the Perth Urban Bushland Fungi Project has come to the position where there are no funds to operate it over the 2012 fungi season.

This means there will be no fungi events for the general public this winter.

The poster 'Common Fungi of the Perth Region" displays 6 fungi easly seen in most bushlands within the Perth Coastal Plain. The Ghost Fungus is bio-luminescent (take it into a darkened room or observe it at night, in the field protected from light). The Magpie Fungus (Coprinus aff. stanglianus) is believed to be an introduced fungus, a member of the 'ink-cap' family which quickly turns black and 'inky' around the cap as it ages. The pinked gilled Volvariella is often seen in disturbed soils (garden beds or lawns with trees nearby). The Dog Poo fungus is often seen pushing its way up through impacted soils such as road verges and the curry punk will be seen on trees in the bushland. The Golden Wood fungus is common on dead banksia wood in most woodlands.
