Interesting lumpy bracket potentially then. Will keep an eye out. Thanks David.

Yes, nice find AJ 👍.Quite difficult to say which species from the pics but think it might be Lurid Bolete Suillellus luridus.

Funnily enough i was passing through your stomping ground recently and spotted The Prince Agaricus augustus beside the A22 near the Crowborough Road turning just outside Nutley. Some beautiful locations around there (not that i had time to stop and explore 🙁).

If it helps, Lurid Bolete usually has a net like or reticulated patterning on it's swollen stem and a very thin dark line (seen when cut in half) between where the tubes finish and the pale flesh begins. These are considered good distinguishing characteristics (although the species is pretty variable). Think i can just about see both on your mushroom (in places) but difficult to be sure i'm not just convincing myself i can as the pics can't be zoomed. 😁 

 

Yes, Ashdown Forest is particularly inviting to me as, living in the Cotswolds all my life, i'm used to having to slog up and down hills all the time.

I think that is quite right. Just checked the books. Lurid bolete could well be the one. Aaron
