Description:

This is the same as my previous post of Hygrocybe psittacina var psittacina but a different group and cap colour.I have posted these to show the variability of the cap colour and how important it is to take notes and a sample home.I at first thought it was Hygrocybe psittacina var perplexa but knew the gill colour was wrong,the cap and stem were viscid but there was no hint of green to be seen.When I got home I found my sample had turned green at the top of the stem so it was H.psittacina var psittacina

Thanks

Excellent I used to have daylight bulbs as I do quite a bit of painting, but as you say since this energy efficient stuff came in I could not replace mine,I will have to search the net and see if I can still get one.This was niggling at me but I think I tried to convince myself I was right.I must say I would have thought the book would say something about this and it was very slimy too.
