A fungal find at Calderstones

Tony Carter reports : On Tuesday 13th March I went for a quick walk round Calderstones Park before the threatened snow arrived. Under some Cupressus leylandii, at the Menlove Avenue end, I found a small patch of the Striate Earthstar Geastrum striatum . I now have two local sites for this uncommon species, the other being at Allerton Tower. Both are under Cupressus so worth having a look if you have any in your area.
