  1. Funny you should be showing us all these fungi. On the news yesterday they showed a similar collection while warning people not to eat them. Several people have either died or are in hospital from fungus poisoning during the last few days! We are also being visited by mosquitos after a summer without being bothered. They must love this warm, damp weather.

  2. Just spotted this! What a great selection! Some of the puffball family, definitely, plus a hedgehog fungus and possibly a honey fungus, plus several Russulas.. .. I need to get my book of European fungi to check them! Watch this space… 😀

  3. Good idea!

    Ok I’m nowhere near an expert, but the top couple and the other white one look like Clitocybe to me – some of which are deadly poisonous.

    The two brown ones with viscid caps may be Lactarius trivialis – if you cut them they exude milk. Not to be eaten.

    The creamy upturned capped toadstool is hedgehog fungus – “edible and good”! But only if you’re very sure that’s what it is!

    There are some Lycoperdon – members of the puffball family.

    The dark red one could be Russula turci with a “somewhat gelatinous” cap. Smells of iodine?

    The last one might be a little honey waxcap (Hygrocybe). A very good haul, Isobel!
