Oh no! Not another pudding

Oh no!
Not another pudding connection - I always think of tiramisu when I see Coltricia perennis. We were really excited when we saw this - Culbin is rather good for tooth fungi and has four species recorded there.

Huh?

Coltricia perennis - tiramisu??? ?

Hmmm ....

Like an elephant reminds one of rice pudding?

:-)

But yes, Hydnellum peckii can be spectacular at Culbin. Amazing place.
