Fungus in mixed woodland

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Fungus in mixed woodland

Post by Ernesto » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:35 am

I have a found a couple of fungi in a patch of mixed woodland in Bedfordshire. I would appreciate any help to confirm (or reject) my suspicions. The first one I believe could be Rhodotus palmatus, I think that the log it was on was a felled elm. Unfortunately a slug had partially eaten the specimen between me first seeing it and getting the camera to it.

Thanks for your help!
