Over the past festive season I was invited to join some family members on a trip into a cave.   of course I accept.  It would mean being outside the town / city limits...;)


As you go further into the cave you can feel the humidity increase and the oxygen drop.  just a few steps over some rocks and you are chasing your breath.

quite deep into the cave I saw these - now by this time nothing was steady anymore.  although I tried I could not keep my hands steady for the photograph. 


On anycase - here it is.  I suspect something quite common.   I do not know the mushrooms well enough to guess an ID. cave 1.jpg cave 2.jpg

no bats that I saw during the three hours we were inside. but quite a number of people pass there every year.  at a few places there were lights installed.


the lighting on the mushroom was supplied by ne of those lights.

Cave mushies?! That's awesome! I would expect they take a long time to grow out completely with the lack of oxygen, and light. Really sweet find, man.

Hi Grumpy,,  Here is a pic. The gills were white - or close enough to white.  This was a small one that had been broken off by someone.  I just picked it up and carried it home. 27-12-2016 5.jpg

the bruised area was where I held it for about 30-45 mins until I had a place to put it.

The first pic looks coprinoid, maybe a Coprinopsis.



The pic with the gills looks like a Lepiota.
