It was a bright sunny day so Emma and I took Lacey out for a walk around the reservoir. There was no shortage of fungi to look at.
Some very small waxcaps just coming up. Most likely Heath Waxcap (Hygrocybe laeta var. laeta) given the size, colouring and striations at the edge of the cap.
Growing under a fallen larch tree was a long line of Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare).
Coral Spot (Nectria cinnabarina).
White Brain (Exidia thuretiana).
Still many remains of Blackening Brittlegill (Russula nigricans) to be seen.
Common Jelly Spot (Dacrymyces stillatus).
Beech Woodwart (Hypoxylon fragiforme).
Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae).
Leafy Brain (Tremella foliacea).
Emma spotted these glowing in the sunlight. The find of the day and a new one for me.
Scarlet Caterpillarclub (Cordyceps militaris).
An Oak was covered in Wrinkled Crust (Phlebia radiata) but I’ve not seen it growing on/through moss like this before.
Hairy Curtain Crust (Stereum hirsutum).
Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus).
A single cup, possbily Peziza.
A big old Butter Cap (Rhodocollybia butyracea) tucked away under a fallen trunk.
One particular area was thick with Terracotta Hedgehogs (Hydnum rufescens).
Olive Oysterling (Sarcomyxa serotina).
