Our Fungus Foray on 7 August 2015 at Llanllwch, Carmarthenshire.

Many thanks to Tony for showing us around his "little wood" last Friday, it was a delightful place, especially for fungi. Although the star attraction was the Hazel Gloves, there were plenty of others for us to see. In the end we managed to record 27 different species which we have listed below. There were also a few others that we did not get a name to and probably a few more that we forgot to record. So all in all a very busy place!
Thanks again!

  1. I really enjoyed the afternoon - the range of species to be found was fascinating. Isabel

  2. Glad you all enjoyed your day. Later in the year it will probably get better! So perhaps a repeat performance?

  3. The "pink" fb (photo27) Which is listed as unidentified is almost certainly Mycena rosea, I didn't see it found but it is a common species in the wood - found some fb's today
