Hardcastle Crags 25-04-13

 I managed to find a perfect Pinecone Cap protruding out of the woodland floor, which had grown on a pine cone submerged underneath, and also some more cheerful Snowy Discos, this time growing from a pine twig. 

Pinecone Cap (Strobilurus tenacellus), above and below.

Snowy Disco (Lachnum virgineum), growing on a pine twig.

Pine Needle Cast (Lophodermium pinastri).

I ran out of time at the Crags, so I photographed the Pine Needle Cast at home (above and below).

The black, oval fruiting bodies (apothecia) run in lines along the needle itself and have a shallow depression at the centre.
