  1. A new patch has popped up in my garden, I'm not sure what type it is though.

    1. I find it very difficult to identify fungi. The only one I can really be sure of is the red fly agaric.

  2. We have plenty of fly agaric here round the birch trees Sue, difficult to get a good photo as the slugs, I am assuming, get to them pretty quickly.

    1. These were growing close to birch trees too, Rick. I assumed it was the slugs that would be nibbling them too

  4. How interesting - I've never run into any of those colourful ones. Did you find these all within the same area or were they taken in different locations?

    1. No, Malar. Not to us but something has obviously been nibbling them.

  9. Sue, these fungi are interesting but none of them are edible, never! I say you as I know many kinds of fungi. They are:amanita muscari #1,3,5, laktarius pirogalius # 2,4,6, Inocybe lastigiata # 7
    Take care and wash your hands after touching them.

  10. The colours and shapes are quite beautiful! I'd love to know how to forage for mushrooms.
