Welcome to the first Let’s Go Shroomin! During the wet season, I will provide a number of blogs to keep you upto date with all the latest sightings on the Let’s Go Shroomin Tours.
It was a gradual start to the season with only a few drops of rain during October and November that wasn’t quite enough to really fire up the mycelium and get things fruiting. But once the rains hit in December it was mushroom mania!
Some of the sweetest little mushrooms around and the species that really started my learning journey of fungi discovery in Tropical North Queensland are the delightful Marasmius species. I first saw these in the garden beds in my backyard, and have since discovered a few little hidden nooks where these pop up in abundance. Even though they are tiny and look quite fragile, their stem is rather robust.
