An August bank holiday outing to Dibbinsdale LNR on the Wirral provided some interesting fungi finds including some edible and some deadly delights!
A 22cm wide fresh specimen of edible Beefsteak Fungus Fistulina hepatica. In a couple of weeks this will have matured to resemble a prime cut of meat.
The deadly Funeral Bell Galerina marginata that can be confused with the edible Sheathed Woodtuft Kuehneromyces mutabilis
The yellow spindle coral fungi Clavulinopsis fusiformis
Ochre Brittlegill Russula ochroleuca
Sulphur Tuft Hypholoma fasciculare
Bay Polypore Polyporus badius = P. durus
