Long Wood 30-07-13

 Michael Sykes found these fungi whilst having a stroll through the wood.

Rosy Brittlegill (Russula rosea).

Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus) above and the remains of one below.

  1. The black top of the Stinkhorn is its covering of sticky spores. The overpowering gas-like smell of this fungus attracts many flies - mostly bluebottle types - which will take every bit of the black away, spreading the fungus spores around, and leaving it white like another of Alison's pictures of Stinkhorn, Phallus impudicus, she posted recently.
