Description:

What a difference a day makes! Clusters of milky white egg shaped blobs yesterday and hard brown 'cake' today. Nothing like the previous specimen of this I found but internet research suggests it is the same species.

Identifications

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.

Let me know when it comes please!

Like you I've searched for information with pictures (I seem to be able to find some of either without the other)and they seem so interesting. I found this site with stunning photography but little information.

In the end I relied on Flaxton's comment on this post http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/287216

We seem to be back to the perennial cry for an expert!!

I will

I will as soon as it arrives,I too feel that we seem to rely on Flaxton for help, maybe we need more experts or we will have to become experts ourselves one day.
