Oliver and I had another trip Crags and we managed to find the Pholiota flammans beaming brightly from the edge of a fallen dead pinus trunk It is said to be rare and mainly found in the Scottish Highlands, but after careful examination the spores came up trumps and if I knew then what I know now, I would have taken some better photographs!
