Growing on a mossy willow log. This fruit is approx 100mm, smells aniseedy and has gills that turn into ridges down the stem. I think Craterellus of some sort but can't seem to find one that matches the description


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

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

  • Craterellus?
    Confidence: It might be this.

Possible ID

One of my fellow foragers has suggested this might be Lentinellus cochleatus, the Aniseed Cockleshell.

Horn of Plenty/Trompet de Mort?

Looks rather like Craterellus cornucopioides to me.

I've seen C cornucopioides before and I'm pretty sure it wasn't that, coupled with the strong aniseed smell I'm going to stick with lentinellus suggestion
