I thought I would return to the wood again. I didn’t want to travel far that day as it the weather was pretty grim at times I’m glad that I did as I found some Sprucecone Caps, a species I’ve never encountered before.

Sprucecone Cap (Strobilurus esculentus) above and two below. I found three in total below the spruce trees and all they had really long rooting bases.

Taken at home as I wasn’t happy with my photographs in the field.

Cheilocystidia with crystals at the apex.

Spores ellipsoid 5-6 x 3-4.

Healthy Witches’ Butter (Exidia glandulosa).

Colpoma quercinum.
