Fungi season 2024 - up and running!

At the invite of Jeremy and Vanna I visited Earham Cemetery in Norwich this morning to see a couple of new fungi. It was very relaxing to be shown them rather than having to search for them!

Initially we looked at some rather nice Common Mazegill growing on a dead betula then the main event vert close by. This was the rare Daisy Earthstar under Leyland Cyprus, a delicate small earthstar with only 9 previous county records. Growing on the lichen Physcia adscendens was the rather insignificant pale orange fungi Erythricium aurantiacum.

Also around the cemetery we also spotted a single Redlead Roundhead, Common Bonnet, Crimped Gill, Hairy Curtain Crust and Tawny Funnel.

Today's sightings enabled me to hit the 500 species of UK fungi mark
