Fungi: Post Christmas Finds

Mycena inclinata

Extremely wet weather and frosty mornings prevented me from doing much foraying since Christmas. I have managed to get out for a bit of exercise round local parks in south Liverpool but even that was difficult as everywhere is so wet and muddy. All the expected species were present such as Flammulina velutipes (Velvet Shank), and Clitocybe nebularis (Clouded Agaric) which I described for you to look out for in last month’s article. Species of more interest were mostly tiny, hidden on small twigs and under leaves in sheltered spots.
