Another fungi hunt this time to Eastham Country Park on the Wirral, 4th September 2010. More good finds and with the wet weather due this week it should be a great Autumn for fungi!
The distinctive foetid smell of the Common Stinkhorn Phallus impudicus in one area of the woods allowed me to sniff out this mature specimen. Other Stinkhorns were still at the embryonic egg stage.
Amethyst Deciever Laccaria amethystea
Some huge chunky specimens of Southern Bracket Ganoderma australe
In contrast to the delicate Branched Oyster Pleurotus cornucopiae
A rather nice example of Turkeytail Trametes versicolor
And finally a Myxomycetes going by the name of Dog Vomit Slime Mold Fuligo septica
