Fungal foray

Thanks to Alistair Hutchison for these fungi photos taken near Laggan on Sunday. It's defnitely that fungal time of year again.

Egghead Mottlegill -

Panaeolus semiovatus var. semiovatus -
This species, which grows on animal dung is extremely variable in size from just a few millimetres up to 150mm depending on the amount of nutrients available to it.

Possibly some form of slime mould (very similar to that seen on yesterday's ramble)

Yellow Wax Cap - possibly Hygrocybe ceracea
