Don’t think I’ve seen this before, was under a young cedar tree we planted last year.

Looks like a grizette, Amanita vaginata, and ectomycorrhizal apparently.

Ah, probably is one I’ve seen then. Just looked interesting where it was. Cheers.

2021 has been a cracking year for me regarding all things fungi.


Found some amazing species, co-authored a book, gave some online talks & got a microscope to take identification a bit further down the road. 2022 should open up a whole new microworld of geeky myco-fascination 😁🔬


Below image includes a few of my favourite finds this year from Hampstead, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk & Suffolk. Some already known, some new to me.

Species l-r are Silky rosegill (Volvariella bombycina), Summer truffle (Tuber aestivum), Eyelash fungus (Scutellina scutellata), Bilious Bolete (Rubroboletus legaliae), Earpick fungus (Auriscalium vulgare), Fluted Birds nest  (Cyathus striatus), Golden Scaly Cap (Pholiota aurivella), Parasitic Bolete (Pseudoboletus parisiticus) & Scarlet Elfcup (Sarcoscypha austriaca)
