Bolete under Larch
Among the dozens and dozens of Buttercaps, Rhodocollybia butyracea, in the larch plantation just north of Ffos Las I came across this rather drab mushroom about 5 cms across, which looked slightly different. Turning it over it had pores rather than gills. I thought it may be a polypore growing on a piece of buried wood but instead it turned out to be a Sticky bolete, Suillus viscidus, with its slimy cap and the remains of a partial veil. It would appear to be fairly uncommon in Wales.
