Fungi and Mushroom Thread
We have bird and insect thread so I thought as Autumn is on the way and I now have some in the garden we should have a fungi and mushroom thread.
Same as the other threads please post as close as possible to having taken the shot and no old gallery entries.
If you can identify the species then so much the better but not compulsory, as I know how difficult it can be, even using books.
I should also add that if anything is identified as edible DO NOT eat anything similar looking unless you are 100% certain it is the same edible species.
Many mushrooms will kill you if eaten and some edible and non-edible species can look very similar and even experts can get it wrong.
I don't want anything like that to happen because of this thread.
Personally I find fungi interesting and fascinating(including those that cause plant diseases but that's a different thing) so hopefully there will be some interesting shots from others.
Here are some from the garden this week -
