Pyrenula, a lichenized fungus
Fungi of the genus Pyrenula are widespread in tropical and sub-tropical environments

Although fungi are sorted under "plants" on this website, fungi are not plants. They represent a distinct biological kingdom of their own. They include mushrooms, yeasts and molds. Although fairly common, they are often overlooked due to their small size and habitats. Fungi perform important roles of decomposing organic matter and nutrient cycling. The list below contains species of fungi documented in the park. This list is not exhaustive. Please report sightings that are not on this list to the webmaster.
