In the last post I shared some images taken on a very wet New Year’s Day. Several of those photos were of woodland fungi in January, taken in our wood. But what are they and do you have the knowledge for identifying fungi?
I looked in the reference book I have and couldn’t decide. Then I shared a couple of photos on Twitter and the replies began to come in.
A little blue bird told me…
@SusanCollini great picture Susan thanks for sharing!

Fungi identification, phase 2
Anyway, in reply to them and to aid more certain identification I said I’d return to the wood and take some more photographs. So, here first is a view of them topside.
Next, I got down on the woodland floor and attempted to take a photograph of them from underneath. Actually the results were better than I imagined.
Calling all fungi experts
So, who’s got the right answer? I can’t offer the “answers on a postcard please” option, but the comments box at the end of this post is beckoning…
