So far have only seen one single solitary thing of interest, although to be fair, it was very large and impressive, the iPhone photo doesn't do the colours justice....

Hi everyone,

Fungi all over the shop at the moment. Here's a couple more if anyone's still interested!

Postia stiptica is common on logs and told from similar species by the lack of blueing when crushed:





and how about this fabulous find?! An exquisitely-formed, fully protected 'Red Data List'/Biodiversity Action Plan rarity i was very thrilled to see for the first time this week:







Bearded Tooth Hericium erinaceus

Apologies Chubsta! Only just noticed your post. A nice Chicken Of The Woods you've got there - shame it wasn't a bit more fresh. If you haven't tried them, they taste good but the texture tends to be a bit different to other fungi: they are drier, firmer - a bit like tofu i'd say. However, a word of caution, i once cooked a tasty meal combining it with some Shaggy Parasols. Well i don't know which species did it, but my partner was sick all night (i was fine). Which just goes to show, that although a species may be regarded as 'edible', it still might 'disagree' with some people.

Yes, it often out-competes the imagination of sci-fi writers doesn't it Tim?

Hey Tim, returning to herps (albeit non-Brit) for a moment and perhaps, illustrating my point quite timely, how about these tadpoles on a Japanese island that can live in extraordinary temps:

Love that 'Bearded Tooth'! havent ever seen anything like that around here.

We are going out hunting for fungi tomorrow as the temperatures have dropped and it has rained a little over the last week, hopefully will find something, although i am sure it won't be as good as you seem to find regularly!

here is our only notable find during a recent holiday on the Isle of Wight, can you id it for us please? It was pretty big, probably about 8 inches top to bottom.

Hi Chubsta,

Hmm...this is a young fungus and as such, a little tricky as it's yet to reveal it's full characteristics. Certainly, pics of it when more mature would have helped. That said, this looks like it's on oak and i suspect that it's Inonotus, quite likely I. dryadeus. Another possibility is Shaggy Bracket Inonotus hispidus.

Sorry for late reply - problems with my computer!
