Fungus Foray at Pembrey Forest.

Pulvinula miltina
Last Sunday a fungus foray was held in Pembrey Country Park, organised by the Llanelli Naturalists, and it was a lovely  fine day as the group met at the information centre before heading off into the depths of the forest. Dr. Philip Jones was again on hand to lead the event and this time it was taking place on his home hunting ground. Local knowledge paid off as the group were treated to a large and varied selection of different fungi, including an orange-peel lookalike Pulvinula miltina. This is a rare find with only 9 UK records.

Toothed Jelly Fungus

Other fungi noted were Hare's Ear (Otidea onitica), Toad's Ear (Otidea bufonia), Stubble Rosegill (Volvariell glyocephala), Toothed Jelly Fungus (Pseudohydnum gelatinosum ), 3 different sorts of Earthstar, Amethyst Deceiver, Jelly Baby Fungus, Sulphur Knight, Slate-grey Saddle, Horse-hair mushroom, to name but a few!
