Hardcastle Crags. 10th November 2012.

The highlight of the walk through the Crags for my son Oliver, was when he found a Jelly Ear, Auricularia auricularia - judae. It felt so amazing, he even took a piece to bed with him!

FROM STEVE: that's a lovely story about Oliver. He's definitely a budding mycologist :-)

Auricularia auricularia-judae - Jelly Ear

Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus)

This was growing out of a hollow at the bottom of a tree. Tongue shaped caps and it had a very tough stem. Maybe Hen of the Woods.

One of the smaller Inkcap Coprinus species.

                  Flammulina velutipes, Velvet Shank

 A Scleroderma - Earthball
Thanks for your posting, Alison. Sorry, haven't done them all - have to get my tea now.
