Bunch of unidentified mosses on branch floating in river Aura. Most of the shoots looked somewhat immature, but I'd place my bet on Bryum/Ptychostomum sp. if I had to. Did you know that many species of those genera are only identifiable based on sporophyte characteristics like peristome teeth? 
peri = around
stome = mouth, i.e. the capsule opening, spores are released through it
"teeth" = teeth-looking structures around the peristome

So one has to look at the teeth In the mouth of the capsule. Fascinating, isn't it? 😊

Thanks Wikipedia!

@fascinatedbyfungi aka Gordon Walker here posting on behalf of UN Biodiversity. .
Happy Saturday from this amazing sequence of #LionsMane or #Hericiumerinaceus. Hericium are white rot fungi that produce enzymes to break down the lignin which is what binds the cellulose fibers together and give wood it's structure. These saprophytic fungi prey on the heartwood of dead and dying Oaks here in the Napa Valley and Northern California. When young they can appear like beautiful coral colored anemones growing from dark wet wood. As they mature the spines elongate and they turn a bright white but slowly fade yellow to brown and crispy. They are choice edibles and are best when still bright white and tender. Due to their saprophytic nature they are easy to culture and kits can be purchased commercially to grow your own at home.
Like most mushrooms, Lions Mane contains beta-glucans (fungal polysaccharides) which can stimulate our immune systems and support a healthy microbiome. There is potential for Lions Mane to produce other bioactive compounds with anti-microbial/inflammatory/cancer, properties as well. According to recent papers (Vi M, et al. Int J Med Mushrooms. 2018.) and (Ofosu FK, et al. Int J Med Mushrooms. 2016.) the production of these compounds can be modulated by substrate composition and treatment during growth. Exciting world of fungal possibilities out there. Looking forward to more companies using fungus (other than yeast) as an expression system for drugs and bioactive compounds.
