Ryburn Valley - 18.09.2016

A few interesting finds from the latest Society Walk.

Around the Mill Pond at Rishworth Mill we found this beautiful Cep
(Boletus edulis)

Then we found an interestingly formed fungus which had grown an inverted cap on top
Amethyst Deceiver (Laccaria amethystina)

But the highlight was found on the river path between Ripponden and Rishworth
A fungus which parasitises the mycelium of another fungus
A rare sight but worth looking out for at this time of year
 Common Earthball (Scleroderma citrinum)

Parisitised by Parasitic Bolete (Pseudoboletus parasiticus)
