|From underneath the beech strip at NE corner of Red moss|
With a fair few birches there were a number of species with Betula associations
|Easter egg? Amanita fulva|
|Not so obvious - Mollisia ramealis|
Possibly the highlight of the day (though I do have another candidate) was this Snaketongue Truffleclub - Cordyceps ophioglossoides. The parastic Cordyceps reaches up into the air to spread spores from a false truffle which is underground.
Some other great highlights of the day ...
|Boletus luridiformis - blueing like crazy on cutting|
|Cortinarius hemitrichus (?)|
You can't spend a day inthe field without also finding other things, so a small section devoted to them
|Coxcomb prominent caterpillar|
|Common Hawker staying out of the wind|
