Several clusters growing around the wood of a short bridge across a ditch. These were in different stages of aging.
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Certainly looks like C. micaceus.
Good photos and information!
The more I know the more I realise I don't know
I have been taking sets of photos of various fungi - got a backlist of about 30 at the moment but at my stage of learning there are not many that it is easy to go straight toin the book - good fun though eliminating the possibilities. Just been leafing down the recent entries on I Spot and I think I have got False Chanterelle and Honey Fungus in the backlist.
I know the problem with backlist! Recently site has had big problems and I've in the main stopped posting!
Keep posting as many photos and information on Fungi. Not easy subject but hopefully you will learn as you go along.
I'm no expert - 'the more I learn the more I realise I don't know'!!!
I agree, apart from the typo: Caprinus should be Coprinus.
Read it wrong from the book - definately need new specs.
