Unidentified Fungi

Found in leaf litter under broad-leaved woodland - mainly oak. Quite small, the oak leaves give a sense of their scale.


Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

    Likely ID
    Amanita sp.
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.

Out of curiosity I looked up

Out of curiosity I looked up your profile, Rowina, and discovered that only yesterday I had stumbled upon your New Forest Walker website. I'm hoping to visit the NF in April with my camera, so it was really lovely to see your wonderful photos.

Heidi - thank you very much for the kind compliment. I'm sure you'll love the New Forest, April is a wonderful time with spring arriving and everything coming to life.

Thanks again
