It's that time of year again. Here's a couple from yesterday's walk:

There's no vibrations, but wait.

Just north of Alfriston. Masses of the stuff. Edible?



Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

Riggers' pic looks like a lot of false chanterelle, which are 'of no edible value', but Mal's looks very like a macrolepiota, parasol, which is good eating indeed.

Nicknack has a picture of a shaggy ink cap (the white one) which is also good eating BEFORE it gets to that stage.

Two on a dead trunk next to the Basingstoke Canal:




Shaggy parasol. Edible, I'm led to believe.

Sakvatore, the shaggy parasol is edible, but can cause stomach upsetsin some people. Don't eat it raw. Mal's pictures, I think, show ordinary parasols. Differences are that the ordinary one, which is better eating, has a patterned stipe (stem) while old shaggy has a plain one, and the shaggy bruises reddish when you break the flesh.

As it happens, by the time I'd had put the photo on flickr, had its id confirmed and returned next day to where I'd seen it, I was too late - someone else had harvested it. Whether I would have dared to eat it (i.e. trust what I'd been told on the internet), I don't know.

Fascinating. How many modern banks and financial institutions are run by people who take hallucinogenic mushrooms?

One might think so.  :) But to write a book about it sounds far too interesting for the 21st century!

Oddly enough, a chat with another cyclist at the stands this morning led to a short discussion of mushroom hunting. Mostly its dangers!

Another shaggy parasol ?



Don't know what these are. They've taken over the end of a fallen tree in a damp corner of the forest.
[Ed. A bit of googling suggests Sulphur Tuft, aka Clustered Woodlover. 'The "Sulphur Tuft" is bitter and poisonous; consuming it can cause vomiting, diarrhea and convulsions.']

Sulphur tuft tends to be a bit more colourful. The shaggy one could be eithe rink cap or parasol in that view. If paeasol, a woody stem, and once the stem (stipe) reaches full height the cap is spherical before opening. The ink cap is more like one of those sausage balloons they blow up to make 'animals' with.

If that is the underside, and the stem has a sort of filigree pattern, and no reddish bruising, it's a parasol.

It's not the one I photographed a few days ago.

Here is a different view. There's a dip in the middle, not obvious from this photo.



As for the parasol/ink cap in my earlier photo, I went the following day to see if it was opening, and it was in pieces, as if someone had smashed it with a stick.
