IUCN Status: Not Assessed

These tiny, dainty fungi (I don’t use the word dainty often) are common across southern Australia, and New Zealand. They grow in the litter growing on leaves and small twigs in wet forests through all but the coldest part of the year.
This photo was taken in a forest walk at Corina on the west coast of Tasmania. Corina is a tiny ex-mining town turned eco-tourism lodge. If the opportunity presents, I recommend a visit.
