Ear Fungus in Pemrey Forest
Came across this "Ear-type" fungus in Pembrey yesterday. The spores were 11-13um x 5-6um and the asci tips did not turn blue in Iodine so looks like it could be Otidea onotica (Hare's Ear). But the asci however were too
short at 150um rather than 250um. Could it be another genus?
Not a lot more about, but did see a group of Paxillus innvolutus (brown roll-rim) and a Hebeloma which is probably Hebeloma crustuliniforme (Poisonpie).
