Peru Rainforest Amazon Pachitea Llullapichis Panguana Species Diversity : Pilze am Boden
This is the kingdom of fungi, which present themselves in splendid colors and every shape and size. Ironically enough, it
is the most impressive and beautiful of the fungi that one can notice at a distance of several meters by its awful corpse small. It belongs to the stink morels, and is called the Skirted Stinkhorn (Dictyophora sp.). Just a few hours old, it hangs itself under a white veil whose brim grows so fast that one can watch it. Just after reaching the height of its beauty it begins to decay. Fungi are attached to bark, roots and especially in the underwood where they go about their business of creating humus for the rainforest. Many of them begin to decompose themselves just hours after being created. They are immediately surrounded by a swarm of tiny flies and bees, which in turn prove irresistible for other predators. They attract frogs, such as the Allobates femoralis, which belongs to the poison arrow frog (Dendrobatidae), who can easily eat their fill for the day.
