No Comments Steve Blacksmith May 23, 2014 at 7:47 pm - Reply That's interesting that it's on willow. It's usually on oak in this area isn't it? Alison May 23, 2014 at 8:49 pm - Reply Hi Steve, Yes it is usually on oak in this area but myself and Peachysteve did find it on a sweet chestnut at Gollows Pole Hill earlier in the year but too horribly desiccated and manky to post. That is why I put the picture of the willow on as it is not commonly found on this substrate. Never eat one if you find it on Yew as the fungus can draw the toxic elements from the tree and it would make you very poorly if not dead (I am led to believe)! All parts of the tree apart from the fleshy red bits of the fruit contain taxane alkaloides so it would be best avoided if anyone ever found it on a Yew.
