The rain we had a couple of nights ago brought out a number of Stinkhorn fungi ( Phallus impudicus), in Troserch Woods yesterday. This one seems to have fruited so quickly that it had fallen out of the ground. Also there were a fair number of fresh Blushing Amanita (Amanita rubescens) dotted around as well.
The other fungus, growing through the gravel of a woodland path I take to be Weeping Widow (Lacrymaria lacrymabunda), with dark brown, very warty spores. Although being a bit dried out it would seem her weeping days have passed.
