Tawny Funnel (Lepista flaccida)

Post by chrisjohnson » 08 Jan 2014, 09:01

Both here and nationally, it has been a very good fungi season and due to the mild weather, fungi can still be found. On a visit to North Loch Eynort at the weekend, we came across a large area of fruiting Tawny Funnels which are common in all types of woodland, often in large groups or rings. The woodland-floor litter is gathered round the mycelium when lifted. Strongly decurrent gills and an aromatic smell all help to identify it. This is a new record for the Outer Hebrides, largely due to the paucity of woodland on the islands.
