Helvella elastica Elastic saddle

Compare http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/226913 a few hundred metres away but only about 1/3 the size. Have given both the same name but suspect they are two different species.


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

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