Interesting
So is that a grazed area made by the detritivore/herbivore/(fungivore?) millipede? One assumes that a predatory centipede would have no interest in fungi.

It certainly looks like it. As far as centipedes go, maybe they would use them as shelter or something? Or go there to prey on something. I remember collecting dunel morels and being shocked by all the woodlice harbouring inside.

Orange birch boletus (Leccinum versipelle) in lovely ancient woodland. A great foraging day in late September...

....and one from today. Blusher (Amanita rubescens) in garden under oak following a flush of various mushrooms over the last week - strange because it's been very dry recently.

Might this not possibly be Leccinum aurantiacum? Impossible to check now of course . . .
