Fungi time

There are lots of fungi about around tree stumps and the damp autumn leaves at the moment. Here are just a few taken on our estate verges with my phone.

Identification is never easy. I’ve given my best estimate of the names. I think the featured image is also common inkcap at another stage. Anyone got a better id?

By ring counting the recently felled dead conifer was about 60 years old, maybe killed by the fungus?

  1. Both cedars were infected with fungus and had died because of it. I was told this by the man whose house the trees were outside. He was glad to see them go; I was more interested in counting the rings in the stumps when he told me this, and was appreciatng what was left of them.
