It's that time of year again.

I thought exactly that when I looked at the drying green this evening  :)

Also, you're late this year: https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=52196.msg1920895#msg1920895

 ;)

I would have been grovelling on the forest floor earlier but I've just got back from the world championships in Harrogate and the Wigtown Book Festival, which were both rubbish for spotting fungi.

BTW Lars and Monica send their best wishes (soz - it's taken me over a year to pass them on).

Thanks for that. Brings back good memories  :)

Fly agaric. I think I've only seen pictures before today.

If that were my knee I'd be worried.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

From a stroll along the Epping Forest Centenary Walk (main post).

Perhaps not entirely in the spirit of this thread, but I was very excited to find these in the woods next door last autumn:


And very tasty they were too:


I just wish I'd marked the spot where I found them... I can't remember exactly where it was so haven't had a repeat. Oh well.

Here's one I took in situ last autumn - no thoughts of picking this one:


Not entirely sure what it is - maybe a young fly agaric before the spots have developed? The cap was bright and shiny and very round, like a tiny tomato. Unfortunately, my iphone camera was damaged, hence the poor picture quality. I've repaired it now so might get some better pictures next time - though nothing to compete with some of the proper photography shown on this thread.

Saw some interesting specimens in the woods the other day, some I didn't recognise so not sure if they were edible or not, and annoyingly didn't have any means of taking pictures with me. Today's weather means an early morning forage tomorrow might be fruitful...

Some seen today - only phone camera pics and not the most interesting specimens (also it's hard to take pics when the dog is pulling on the lead, desperate to chase squirrels and go down badger setts) but still... any pointers on identification welcome.

1. Puffball?

2. Charcoal burner?

IMG_1133

3. No idea...

IMG_1134

4. Some big gnarly old thing whose cap had curled up to collect rainwater

IMG_1136

5. No idea... probably same as #3?

IMG_1137

6. No idea...

IMG_1140

7. A cluster of pre-nibbled bay bolete? - when I broke a bit off, it went blue, which seems to be a strong clue here. I know they're supposed to be good eating but I didn't fancy some woodland creature's leftovers.

8. Some kind of Trametes... Turkey tail? Presumably the green is some kind of algae rather than their own colour.

I think the bottom one is possibly algae-stained coriolis versicolor.  The one in the previous post looks like a penny bun.

Do they do the turning blue thing? From the info I can find online, that suggests it's either bay bolete or a toxic lookalike.

Don't know, I'm afraid.  I exhausted all my "knowledge" in the reply!
