Fairies' Purses Revisited

New Birds' Nest Fungus More Birds' Nest Fungi

After an interlude of handbag stitching, there is a certain logic to revisiting my Fairies' Purse fungi. Several rains have splashed all the little funiculi "coins" out of the purses, but the rough orange blobs are fresh purses sprouting all over the stick. There's even a new purse growing inside an old one. You know from the previous birds' nest fungi post where the yellow fur came from.

We have these growing in my front yard in Hawaii. It's been very dry, so I haven't seen them lately, but I discovered them here last fall.
