Greenhouse Fungi

I'm running a couple of fungi walks around the Botanic Garden for our first Science, Nature and Comedy Festival on the weekend of 16/17 Sept 1-2pm. A great excuse to go out looking for new fruitng bodies and was chuffed to find this beautiful plantpot dapperling Leucocoprinus birnbaumii in our Plas Pilipala butterfly house. New to me - supposedly common in greenhouses but not often formally recorded in the UK.

  1. That's excellent Bruce. You'll have to stand guard over it to make sure it sheds all its spores and perhaps we can have a colony of them there!

  2. Will try and make one of these days - I do love the fungi there - have you seen the birds nest near the banana tree by the exit to the butterfly house
