    Please can somebody ID these:

    First one:
    It started growing from a small rock. It's about the size of a R2 coin at the moment and has tiny bright orange bubbles. A few days ago I noticed it has two mouths so I'm hoping it will split soon.

    Second one:
    There are three or four of these on a rock. They're a bit bigger that a R5 coin. Bright green tips.

    Third one:
    About 6cm in diameter.

    I hope the pics show up properly, taken with my iphone and had to use the "hosted by tapatalk" option as I get an invalid file type error when trying to upload directly.

    Thanks. However the tentacles/bubble of the first two look similar to Florida Rics. I've googled rhodactis, action discus and discosoma and they seem to be the "normal" or "hairy" mushrooms we all know. To be honest if the bubbles of the first two were a teeny bit less tubular and more round, I would have thought them to be Rics. Hehe but I very highly doubt they are. Perhaps @SIMS can have a look maybe in his Ric endeavors he's come across ones similar to mine.

    First two are ricordia yuma. Not too sure on the third. It looks like a florida ricordia but normally they are more colourful.

    I agree they do look a lot like yumas . I got the third one from @rakabos ages ago, maybe he can tell us what it is. It was a tiny little hairy shroom when I got it.

    I must add the third one is in a shaded spot, could possibly be why he's not very colorful.
