11th September


Another trip to Lough Erne.


Mostly sunny.

These two Blackening Waxcaps - Hygrocybe nigrescens - were just pushing through the soil.

This extraordinary fungus isn't only strangely coloured: It also smells very strongly of mouse urine. It's Entoloma incanum. About 2.5 cm. across the cap.


I was on my way to a food fair at Enniskillen, so I stopped to pick a few edible fungi. This Shaggy Parasol - Lepiota rhacodes - went down well. About 12 cm. across the cap.


This Miller - Clitopilus prunulus - was also eaten. Absolutely delicious.


This cup fungus is a Peziza of some kind. 3 cm. across.
