Arched Earthstar, Geastrum fornicatum near Norwich, 7 February 2024

Acting on a tip off from a friend I popped along to a location just south of Norwich this afternoon to see a new species of fungus for me - Arched Earthstar.

I knew the spot well having seen another rare earthstar Geastrum britannicum there a couple of years ago. Growing under a large old Yew tree (typical habitat) I found them in exactly the same place and without too much trouble counted 17 in varying states.
