Dead Bracken

If you are interested in microfungi look at the dead stems for black, slightly raised lines around 5mm long. These are Rhopographus filicinus. A search in a mass of fallen fronds might reveal small white 'stalks' about 1.5cm long and projecting from the damp stems. This is Typhula quisquilaris.
