Beautiful, isn’t it, those mushrooms? Like this one, the fairytale antler fungus (left in the photo). The name says it all, the fruiting body is shaped like deer antlers. The species is indispensable, like all fungi. They remove natural waste and create fertile soil again, allowing new plants to grow.
Do you like identifying mushrooms? Then try the ObsIdentify app. It is free to download for Android and Apple. You take a photo and then the app tells you which species it is (with a percentage chance). It is a handy tool that you can use next to an identification book or search card. You can link this app with waarnemingen.nl so that the observed species is immediately added to the database. Ideal!
