Candle-snuff fungus

Candle-snuff fungus

Observation - Candle-snuff fungus - UK and Ireland. Description: Also known as Stags Horn fungus. Found growing o wood on woodland floor in small clump. I suppose the name 'Candle-snuff' refers to its likeness to a snuffed wick of a candle - black at base and white at the 'snuffed' out top.
