A delicate fungi, mainly creamy white coloured turning peachy pink at the edges, the underside looks a little like lace. Approximately 8-10cm across - each cluster.


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

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

Very intersting, do you have

Very intersting, do you have higher resolutin images as I can't really see any detail of the underside. Do you think it could be one fungus growing on another?

Higher resolution images

Hi Miked
I've added two original images - I hope they help somewhat.

They looked very much like one fungus to me, although I'm no expert.

Thanks, the other reason i

Thanks, the other reason i wanted a higher res image was to check if it was spines(teeth) or not underneath and they don't look like spines. Have seen one or two that look a bit like this in the books but i am not very familiar with them so would not like to make an ID. probably someone else would have a go. by the way have you come across the hampshire fungus group and there may be another group that deals with fungi just in new forest.

Thank you Miked for the links

Thank you Miked for the links - very interesting.
Andy - that looks very much like it. I've found a picture on the site that looks exactly the same as the one I've seen, although it looks like this can take a number of forms. I'll change the ID and see if I get any agreements.

Thanks again for all the info.
