More Luddenden Fungi- 29/8/19

The above three images are of the Orange Grisette (Amanita crocea)
The top image shows a specimen emerging from the volval sac.
The middle image shows the striate edges to the orange cap.
The third image shows the stipe covered in cap coloured squamules, and the cream coloured gills.
Although not rare, it is an impressive and beautiful fungi to find.

The above image is of The Charcoal Burner (Russula cyanoxantha)
It has a very variable cap colour, ranging from violet, grey, green and purple,
which can be confusing when trying to identify it.
One key feature is that the gills don't break easily when rubbed, unlike other Russulas.
