Mynydd Mawr Country Park

Beginning to see a few more fungi about as autumn approaches. Included were a nice group of boletes (Suillus sp.- with their slimy brown caps). Probably a Larch bolete as the gills bruised to a rusty brown, but a forgot to check what sort of tree they were under - must add that to my "to do" list next time!  

Another nice example was a Blackening waxcap (Hygrocybe conica). It was strange to see the waxcap alongside a path in the middle of the woods rather than in the surrounding fields.

  1. The blackening waxcap has popped up in large numbers at the Boatnic Garden over the past week - very orange they are this year.
