First visit to the forest for a long while, Starting about this time of year the forest floor is normally covered in many varieties of mushroom. I am so disappointed as the area I always visit has been harvested by the forestry commission. I know it will be re-planted but it will be years before it matures to the state of what I used to enjoy. Mind you a restaurant will pay good money for a specimen like this, (I left it alone though).

A great find. I enjoy when fungi time comes round but I'm hopeless on ID.

I'm not to clever at ID myself, I get by on most of the well known or common ones but there are so many mushrooms totally different in looks from another yet experts say they are the same family. Baffles me!!!!

i have the same problems with identification but you, obviously, had no problems taking a fine shot of this great specimen... i don't know how you resisted the temptation to take it home - to eat, not sell...
