Fungi in Auckland Park, Bishop Auckland





















Found some lovely toadstools in Auckland Park at Bishop Auckland last week. I'm pretty sure this is the trooping funnel Clitocybe geotropa - this was the largest in a ring of eleven under a beech tree. Beautiful arrangement of gills under that funnel-shaped cap.















I think this must be hairy curtain crust Stereum hirsutum .......






































.... and this is probably the same species, perhaps paler because the rain had washed out some of the pigment.

  1. The first couple are pristine examples aren't they?

    The last one looks like maple syrup has been poured over it.
