Thanks for the reference.

Thank you, I've now got it on order! This fungus was new to me (as I must admit many are)and I enjoy finding more out about the subject.

I'm glad my...............

I'm glad my old observation helped you! Only witches eat this sort of butter. So I wouldn't try it on your toast if I were you - unless you are a witch of course! ;)
