Earthstar in full glory

September 26th, 2010
Geastrum sp.

Rounded Earthstar (Geastrum fimbriatum)

Came across this great example of an earthstar fungus the other day – real treat. I think it is Geastrum fimbriatum (but the ring around the spore hole could make it G. saccatum). Any feedback welcome!

Fungal forays this autumn

September 20th, 2010

Great Autumn for Fungi – wet and warm. A trip to your local woodland trust or local wildlife trust woodland will be rewarded with some great fungal finds this autumn. As always – look and don’t touch – many of these are pleasant to look at but harmful if eaten (some not so pleasant to look at) – These are some photos taken with an iPhone and posted to our TwitPic service over the weekend.
