Apologies about the last, slightly blurred picture.


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

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

Species interactions

No interactions present.

That's a good display. Were there any nice beetles living in it?

I should be more observant

Not any obvious ones, but I only had a quick close-up, the larger brackets were quite high up even for me to easily look at!
