Description:

Viewed from a distance, these rings stood out so clearly on the grassy bank that I could not resist photographing them. Many of them are incomplete circles, while nearby the rings on flat ground seem to be complete. Am I just imagining this, or has anyone else noticed a difference like this elsewhere? It would be really interesting to know if this is a real phenomenon and, if it is, what the reason for it is.

These are almost certainly fungal but there are many that cause these rings other than just Marasmius.

Ah, right! I did not know

Ah, right! I did not know that, but now you mention it, of course makes sense. I'll look out for fruiting bodies and add them if/when they appear.
