Triglossum hirsutum

I have a fondness for fungal misfits and oddities, and the earth tongue family of Triglossum simply appeals to my quirky sensibilities. It's hairy and black, it looks like a cross between a dead leaf and a twig, and it can cover cover large areas with hundreds of projecting stipes yet still prove nearly invisible to a casual observer. For some reason, I find the thought very appealing that a commonly occuring forest dweller can remain so anonymous.
