Ladybelt CP with the Norfolk Fungus Study Group, 2 September 2023

Ladybelt CP near East Carleton is a new site for me and the scene of my first trip of the autumn out with the NFSG.

For a fungi foray it is strange to mention non-fungi items first but seeing both False Ladybird and the massively impressive Red Slug there was very pleasing indeed!

As far as fungi goes it was fairly quiet but as I'm still relatively new to mycology there was still plenty of interest for me. I was chuffed to reach 400 species with a pristine Dryad's Saddle with the other highlights being Upright Coral, Willow Shield, Hairy Nut Disco (I kid you not about the name!), Winter Bonnet, Milking Bonnet, Hogweed Mildew, Hemimycena delectabilis, Yellowing Oysterling, Dead Moll's Fingers, Bowl Hoodie, Sepia Bolete, Rosy Crust, Leopard Earthball, Hazel Woodwart, Bay Polypore, Stump Puffball and Green Elfcup

Round-leaved Fluellen on the edge of an arable field was a great find by Ian and only the 2nd time I've seen it.
