Fungi in the reserve

There are some fungi to the right of the Wood Entrance that are new to us.  These are lepiota rhacoides . They are said to be edible but may give some folk an upset tummy !

 

 

 

 

 

On an old  log that forms a path edging are these dead mans fingers (xylaria polymorpha)

 

 

 

 

 

 

These that are growing on the fallen beech stump look like the children of dead man’s fingers and are Xylaria hypoxylon, the candlesnuff fungus.
