Further Fungi Forays 3

Some more local foraging along hedgerow and in the park produced a few new fungi and several we have seen already. It was interesting in the park, to see what had become of a fungi which was in a magnificent state a week ago and is now no more than the blackened remains.

Sheathed Woodtuft Kuehneromyces mutabilis – Five Days Later

Nearby a new, or previously unnoticed fungi.

Beefsteak Polypore Fistulina hepatica

Along the hedgerow no fungi but more of Autumn’s ‘mellow fruitfulness’… two fruiting bodies. The first rather ‘moth-eaten’.

Cuckoo Pint Arum maculatum

Stinking Iris Iris foetidissima

On a cleared woodland edge a number of nightshade plants. Without seeing the fruit I would not confidently identify the species… but I think it is what we grew up calling ‘woody nightshade’ which has vivid red berries as opposed the the jet black ones of deadly nightshade.

Bittersweet Nightshade Solanum dulcamara

Rant it out!
