no damage

The spores from a fungi have already dispersed by the time the fruiting body appear's so don't worry.It is really helpful to get a photo of all parts of the fungi to enable people to give an id.You have put some interesting fungi on.

Thanks for that, well worth

Thanks for that, well worth knowing. I'm trying to get ident's so I may better understand them and their role throughout the grounds. Some of the bigger varieties are targets for visitors and often get damaged. I'm on a crusade therefore to raise their profile & get them preserved where possible. I have little time available, so many thanks for your help, it is much appreciated.
