Dune Brittlestem psathyrella ammophila

Dune Brittlestem psathyrella ammophila



Dune Brittlestem (psathyrella ammophila), found growing on the sand-dunes of Pembrey beach. It would appear that this little fungus survives by absorbing what it can from the dead roots of marram grass and other sund-dune plants.

  1. Good to seen something able to fruit during this very dry weather --- what has happened to April Showers? This is a tough fungus able to thrive in dry sandy situations and probably the most common species to be seen with marram grass.
