18th February


Disused quarry.


Sun and blue sky all day, but cool in the shade.


Flammulina velutipes - Velvet Shank - is one of the fungi that are frost-resistant. This pair were growing on dead Gorse. Cap about 3 cm.


This small (1 cm.) Paneolus growing in grass. It's probably Panaeolus fimicola, since that is associated with dung, and there are plenty of sheep in this area.

Yellow Brain fungus - Tremella mesenterica - is parasitic on crust fungi. In this case on Gorse.



Quite a fungal day, really...this looks like a little Galerina. Again in grass.

And finally, large specimens of mature Meruliopsis corium on....Gorse again.
