These are like tiny cotton buds and tend to appear in colonies of many hundreds. The live on dead wood and these were on what had been the inner surface of a split log in mixed woodland.

The name is from the scent of the herb fenugreek, of which it smells.

I know we find them infrequently but I didn't realise it was 5 years since I last photographed them:


Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, f8, hand-held.

For closer views see the previous posting via the link.

The feather-like growth is another, much more common woodland fungus.

The stereos are crosseye
