Some fairly common fungi over the past few days

Nothing exotic like Co;in or Stephanie just some ordinary signs of things to come. .
Lactarius controversus is one of the largest Lactarius species.  I find in this area it is usually with Willow and may form large rings, a above.  With age it goes a bit pink and the gills in this pic seem a bit pink.  The milk is acrid but at first it seemed fairly mild --- then it got hot.  At several spots in Pembrey forest.                                 

 Good to see Leotia lubrica Jelly Babies this year, these from Stradey Woods.
Also good to see Coprinellus disseminatus Fairy Inkcap carpeting the base of a rotten tree.  these from Kidwelli, Kymer's canal.
