After a very dry early Autumn, 11 members were pleased to see a good range of boletes, including two with bright red stems: Scarletina and Bitter Beech. Also found were several Russula and Cortinarius species and Otidea onotica which has rabbit-ear shaped cups. The species list numbered 48.
The find for the day was a twig with numerous tiny (3mm) white and woolly caps with stems and thought to be unusual. On further investigation later it was almost certainly identified as Entoloma jahnii for which there are only 13 previous records in the UK, two being at Waggoner’s Wells.
