Description:

I don't much like the name Egghead Mottlegill.
New to this particular field this year, probably for the first time ever, are ponies (kye - Orkney cows - for many years). I wonder whether the spore is latent in the soil, or waiting in the pony's gut or simply floating everywhere, waiting for pony dung perhaps? Whichever, I have a huge variety of grass fungi this year.
Dark, to the point of black later, on the underside and certainly egg-shaped
