Fairy wood.

Our Tuesday meeting at NBGW was a bit quiet this month but mum and I decided to take a quick look in the Fairy wood (behind the carpark by Principality House). 
Where we spotted a few of the usual suspects, some cramp balls, turkey tail and plenty of elf cups along the ditches. 
There was a cluster of very young Hypholoma fasciculare (Sulphur tuft) starting to emerge.

A small group of Kretzschmaria deusta (Brittle cinder fungus) on a rotting log. 

A spectacular colony of the most jet black slime mould sporagium.

And a first for me, absolutely loads of Xylaria carpophila (Beechmast candlesnuff).

  1. A nice variety of species --- thanks for giving names --- scientific then English as this helps greatly ! The K.deusta is a nasty pathogen --- see First Nature bit. The Myxo shiny blobs look wonderful ! Thanks.
