Peachysteve and I had a walk through the reserve and found lots of different species of fungi. I’ve spent too long checking the Lacrymaria lacrymabunda that we found and I’m afraid that a lot of other things have gone unidentified and therefore I haven’t included any photographs of them.


Clustered Brittlestem (Psathyrella multipedata) – above and spores below.

Spores 7-9.5 x 3.5-4 – elliptic, smooth with germ pore.

Lemon Disco (Bisporella citrina) – above and below.

Weeping Widow (Lacrymaria lacrymabunda). We found two different looking specimens and thought that one may have been L. pyrotricha as it was much more robust and it had a much more fibrous and scaly stem but when I showed them to Archie and Andy from the MYFG they identified both species as L. lacrymabunda so I’m sticking to that and there was no obvious difference under the microscope either.

Weeping Widow (Lacrymaria lacrymabunda).

Cheilocystidia club shaped, spores lemon shaped and warty 9-12 x 5-7.

Oakbug Milkcap (Lactarius quietus).
Blackening Waxcap (Hygrocybe conica) – above and young ones below.

Snowy Waxcap (Hygrocybe virginea).

Clouded Funnel (Clitocybe nebularis) – above and below.

Spores 6-8 x 3-4.

Girdled Knight (Tricholoma cingulatum) above and below. Note the cottony ring on the stem.

White Spindles (Clavaria fragilis). 

Brown Cup (Rutstroemia firma) – above and below.

Brown Rollrim (Paxillus involutus).

Cep (Boletus edulis).
