Octobers harvest of Shaggy Inkcaps (Coprinus comatus) shares the grass with Weeping Widow (Lacrymaria lacrymabunda) mushrooms.
It was two years ago at the end of October 2010 that I first featured a post on the Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus) – or Witches Egg as it appears when in it’s young ‘egg form’…
One of my latest and tastiest finds has been the Saffron Milkcap (Lactarius deliciosus) – one the most sought after Milkcaps, especially in Europe which grows exclusively with pines from summer to autumn.
The Blusher (Amanita rubescens) is one of the more common Amanita mushrooms. Summer to autumn is the best time to find them, usually solitary, in coniferous and deciduous woodland. Often confused with the poisonous Panther Cap.
Branching Oyster Mushroom – Occasional Spring/Summer Oyster Mushroom White / Ochre brown in colour. Edible too.
