Postia Caesia and two golf balls
Had a walk around Troserch Woods yesterday. Didn't find many fungi - there may have been more about but with the drizzle misting up my glasses I could hardly see where I was going. Came across a nice conifer blueing bracket Postia caesia, and two very similar golf-ball like fungi within a few yards of each other. The first however had a very hard, leathery skin - a common earthball, Scleroderma citrinum, whereas the second had the texture of a shell-less chicken's egg and was about to turn into a stinkhorn fungus, Phallus impudicus.
