Of x3 photos. Spectacular Rustgill (Gymnopilus junonius), as it says in the title, and you can see why by its  vivid colour.

There was quite a cluster growing out of a rotting tree stump in the local wood.

  1. I really enjoy your mushroom photos. One of my favorite autumn things to do is wander the woods looking for mushrooms, fungus, and lichen, as all of them are so weird and interesting. In one area of our woods in Alaska there is always a large number of many kinds of mushrooms, but this year there was not one! We had an extremely dry summer, and I’m sure that’s why. I found a few new ones for me in other areas, but not much.

    • I am very pleased you have enjoyed my shroom photos. Thank you Marilyn. We have had quite a wet October here and the shrooms seem to be booming and I have not seen so many in such a long time, so I am really enjoying my hunting. It is always good when you come across new ones, and perhaps you will find more over there.


    • Thank you JIll. I have quite a few fungi reference books here I have built up over the years, but I also use the internet. The thing is I find fungi can be very much a challenge to try and id, and some you cannot with certainty unless you have a microscope.

  2. I agree with Marilyn, I enjoy your mushroom series very much. Fungus, lichen and moss are my favourite, too. In my childhood they were always a place for creatures to live in 🙂
