Re: One to look out for

Went shopping at the Torquay Lidl on Newton Road this morning (location) and had a quick look in the bottom of a Griselinia hedge next to the car park and found fbs on very old wet Griselinia leaves underneath. No photo this time. Further up the road near the hospital I looked in a very manicured lo...

Re: Fungus Of The Day (One identified fungus only please, with species name in attachment comment and in post)

I'm moving from West Wales to Devon and found these Hygrocybe conica (Blackening Waxcap) in my new lawn on Saturday !
If I believed in signs I'd think this was one!
A bit of frost over the weekend so caught them just in time.
Interesting to see them surrounded by Achillea

Found it today on the Aberystwyth University Campus- haven't taken a photo yet.

Thanks for making me look for it!

It didn't really look like either Cd or Pa.
I'll try and get back up there and get some better pictures/specimens.
