Hardcastle Crags Thursday 9th October 2014

Here are the fungi I found whilst walking Basil in the Crags.

Giant Polypore (Meripilus giganteus) above and below.
This was growing out from the roots of a fallen Fagus sylvatica tree.

Yellowleg Bonnet (Mycena epipterigia) above and two below.

There were lots of these growing on the banking beside the footpath.

The stems have a gelatinous coating that can easily be pulled away.

Black Bulgar (Bulgaria inquinans) above and below.

Crested Coral (Clavulina coralloides) above and three below.

It has cristate, branched tips.

Spores 6-8 x 6-7 microns

Hare's Foot Inkcap (Coprinus lagopus) above and four below.

The scales on the cap stuck to the leaves after I laid it down to photograph it.

Spores 11-13 x 6-7 microns.

White Saddle (Helvella crispa).
