Hello Pierre,
An interesting fungi you have presented to us. I have never seen any quite like it, but I believe Lou may be right on the ID.
I checked out some photos of Velvet schweinitzii on the web and it does look like this particular specimen in it's earlier stage of growth. Nicely framed and displaying beautiful color. The top appears to have a velvety texture.

Ciao Pierre, great macro of lovely strange fungi, beautiful colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Amazing fungi Pierre , very nice ;

Thanks for sharing.


This is indeed a curious specimen of a Fungus, Pierre.
Very impressive capture from an angle that lends the subject a three dimensional appearance.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Pierre,
Lou, is the perfect person to find out the exact species. Laszlo is absent; he could do that also.
Well captured this Fungi. Very attractive species. Good sharpness and details.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice Sunday,

Hi Pierre,
Beautiful shot. Probably the background noise is a little too high, but the overall view is impressive. I agree with Lou in the ID specification. Congrats for the nice photo.
Best regards, László
