You're welcome, Steve. I had to have a good scour of Richard Phillips' tome myself to even take a guess. Luckily there are some examples of 'gone over' caps on someof the specimen plates!

Hi Steve

Re that last one: possibly an old sppecimen of Ivory or Fool's Funnel. If it is either treat with caution. Both are deadly according to Phillips .....and common.

Chat Moss - Early evening

Looks like a really good year for Fly Agaric. A total of at least 55 specimens in four locations including one cluster of at least 32 specimens at different stages of growth, some of which were really big measuring approx 15-20cm across the cap and similar height. I dont recall ever seeing any this size before.

Some good numbers of other species as well. Those that I could identify included:

Orange Birch Bolette
Birch Bolette
Brown Roll Rim
Common Puffball
Girdled Knight
Clouded Funnel
Deceiver
Yellow Russula
Lactifluus controversus ?

Also a few dragonflies in the late sunshine
Common Darter
Black Darter
