Cow-pat Fungus.


Checking cow-pats as I walked along near Dryslwyn the other day, as one does, I came across these tiny, orange, Cheilymenia fungi. There are many  species of Cheilymenia but I believe this is Cheilymenia granulata, because a close up picture shows there are no eye-lash type  "hairs" and the outer surface is covered in what resembles tiny granulated sugar crystals. Don't seem to see it as often these days as I seem to remember years ago that most cow-pats were covered in them.
