Brief Summary

Read full entry
Life is not easy for mushrooms growing on the row of dunes adjacent to the beach, the beach ridge. Most mushrooms like warmth and dampness and not dry, scouring sand. However, there are species that actually specialize in beach ridge life. They often only appear late in autumn. Several characteristic species are Hohenbuhelia culmicola, dune brittlestem, Melanoleuca cinereifolia, dune cup, Agaricus devoniensis (sea-dune mushroom), dune stinkhorn, Poronia erici and Geopora arenicola .
