Brown Birch Boletes at Cromwell Bottom

Last nights visit by eight members of the "41 Club" and four from the Cromwell Bottom Group was very enjoyable. The evening weather was perfect. Graham, our Chair ably described the site and its ancient and modern history. Many rare and interesting plants were shown as were lots of projects that have been completed or ongoing. Amongst the finds was the fungi shown below.

This Brown Birch Boletes is about 9" across. It's the biggest I have seen.

The smaller one below was turned over and the underside shown. The spots look unusual as I cannot find that feature in the book.

Many thanks to Alison for final I.D.
