Despite Oliver having tonsillitis and conjunctivitis, he desperately wanted to go for a foray in the Crags today, after reading his favourite fungi book. He really enjoyed the afternoon searching for fungi and it was great to see him back to enjoying mycology again. We did find another Cordyceps which I have now identified and some rather unusual looking cups. Either these Cordyceps are very common, or I am very lucky to find them, but at the moment, I'm not sure which one it is.
Ophiocordyceps ditmarii. The fruit body was 2cm tall.
