I shall be taking a break from updating the First Nature website, but in between too much of everything else I shall try to keep up with answering fungi identification queries. There are a few LBMs (little brown mushrooms) popping up on the lawn, too, so maybe mince pies and microscopy will have to mix.
The strange muddle below is a Mycena bonnet mushroom being attached by Spinellus fusiger, commonly known as bonnet mould.
Thanks to all who visit www.first-nature.com and for the many lovely Christmas greetings.
Best wishes to all,
