Mushrooms on a stick…






Quite a few fungi still around today.. As well as the “mushrooms on a stick” which still needs some identifying, we found some large pink-spored Pluteus growing on wood chip (cap = 9cm). They often have characteristic horned pleurocystidia. Spore size Me = 7.4 x 6.1 ┬Ám ; Qe = 1.2 This is likely to be Pluteus cervinus, the Deer Shield (or pouzarianus if there are clamps in the cap hyphae. TBC)

Also found today – Conocybe filaris, Candlesnuff, Mycena sp, Jew’s Ear, Coprinus micaceus, Armillaria “bootlaces”.
