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

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

I should have said that these only appear in the northern part of the UK and the furthest south they have been recorded is York as Flaxton found some I think

Does Plicatura crispa go by

Does Plicatura crispa go by any other name? It's not in my Collins guide.
PS I'm indebted for the correction, and glad to have found something interesting! It was a spectacular sight - there must be hundreds of them on the one log.

Not in any books I have

The only reason that I know what it is was because I put it on a couple of years ago and Flaxton identified it for me.The only info is if you type it into google or which ever search you use and it will come up,the ones I found yesterday were not as far on as yours and your right it's stunning to see in large groups
