Clavaria argillacea, Dutch Mushroom of the Year


Clavaria argillacea, 13 November 2017

This photo shows the Clavaria argillacea fungus. It was taken in 2017, in the Kootwijkerzand nature reserve, as mentioned earlier in this blog.

The Dutch Mycological Society has named Clavaria argillacea its Mushroom of the Year 2019, as reported on 20 March 2019.

The species used to be common in the Netherlands in the 1930s. About 1980, it had become threatened because of acid rain. Since then, there have been some measures against acid rain. Things are a bit better for Clavaria argillacea now. It is considered no longer ‘endangered‘, but ‘vulnerable‘.
