Lepiota grangei

Lepiota grangei.  This was found in the Country Park, on 24th Oct, close to where the 'foray' was held on 23rd.  This is an uncommon species with prominent green squamules on the cap (young) and on the base of the stipe.  Microscopy shows spore size fits this species as there are a few Lepiota species having a geenish tint. This was under Willow and books say it is found with broadleaf trees.

  1. Isn't it weird to see a green fungus. There seems to be a number of different Lepiota species around the wood doesn't there. Not a group that I've really looked at yet.
