An adventurous December morming walk with the Osbournes and a set of walkie-talkies. We found – Crepitodus mollis (brown gills, elastic peelable cuticle), Jelly Ear, Deceiver, Clouded Funnel, Coprinellus micaceus plus two mycenas and a couple of LBJ’s.
We found a new mycena for us with quite a tough stem. This appears to be the Snapping Bonnet, Mycena vitalis (with finger-like projections on the GEC – see photo). Identified using the simple BMS key. Stem is quite tough but snaps when twisted.
