Beefsteak Fungus Fistulina hepatica

This fungus has a common name likening it to beef and a scientific name referring to liver.

It grows on oak trees.

https://www.wildfooduk.com/mushroom-...fsteak-fungus/

While it is edible, our experience is that it tastes very sour, such that we have not eaten it since our first experience, several decades ago.

I found this one, about the size of my hand, just above ground level, in a local wood in shade.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, (aperture priority), Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, ISO 800,1/6 at f8, hand-held.

Not sure what is the proper name for this, but is certainly a big one about 18cm in diameter.

Shaggy Parasol Chlorophyllum rhacodes

In my opinion, the tastiest of the edible ones.

Tawny Grisette Amanita fulva

The name comes from the grey colour of the Grisette Amanita vaginata. Both species are found in woodland, usually as solitary individuals, and are edible. Some other species in the genus are deadly poisonous.

The stereo is crosseye.

Sweet Chestnut Castanea sativa Fruits

There are locations that I can visit, within a comfortable driving distance, where there are Sweet Chestnut trees. These bear the culinary nuts.

At this time of year, there are many fruits, shed by the trees, on the ground. Before ripening, they are high up in the trees, up to 100 feet (ca 35m) above our heads.

I was fortunate, on a local nature reserve, to find theses fruits at eye level on a young tree.

The stereo is crosseye.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Looking for an ID on this one. I think it is Aniseed Cockleshell (Lentinellus cochleatus) but it didn't smell like aniseed. Any help appreciated.

Impossible to be sure but it looks suspiciously like Honey Fungus.

I think it might be Tawny Funnel.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Sulphur Tuft Hypholoma fasciculare

This is a common woodland mushroom found on rotting trees stumps or rotting fallen trees. Sometimes many clumps can be found on a small area of woodland but, more usually, one or two widely spaced ones is more the usual experience. Anyway, it is usually possible to find a photogenic clump, even better if it is bathed in a shaft of sunlight.

Red Acer

This is s diminutive variety, not as tall as I am. The leaves in autumn are about as intensely red as any.

Photographed after prolonged, heavy rain.
