Tuesday at the N.B.G.W. around the outside of the Great Glasshouse - these Blackening Waxcaps were spotted and identified by Jan Crowden. There must have been a dozen in various states of 'Nigrescence'- the old name seems to be more descriptive I think.


  1. Names of fungi are 'regulated' and conica takes priority over nigrescens unfortunatesly, although both descriptions 'fit'!

  2. A backing waxcap was also recorded in Molinia grassland at the recorders day at Ynysdawela Nature Park last Thursday.
