Animal, vegetable or mineral?

Animal, vegetable or mineral?

Spotted on the way down Hartsop Above How in the Lake District. It was on the very waterlogged earth, where the grass had slipped away. I gave it a gentle nudge to and it seemed fairly well rooted.


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

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