Fungal Opportunism

Tony Carter reports:  An interesting example of fungal opportunism was in evidence in Liverpool in November. At the place where I park my car every day, the fallen leaves had been swept from the pavement and piled into the gutter to await clearance by the Council. Within the seven days that the leaves were there, two Geastrum triplex (Collared Earthstar) appeared. I wonder where they are now?
