High House woods

Pleated Inkcap

Dryad's Saddle

Wood Oysterling

Some fungi pics taken this morning on the edge of high house woods west of Morpeth. I believe the bottom picture is of Wood oysterling (Melanotus horizontalis) but I had to point the camera into a hollow Hazel as only a tiny part of the cap was showing. The tiny and delicate Pleated Inkcap (Parasola plicatalis) was taken in the meadows beside the High ford bridge and a tiny egg shaped younger form not much bigger than a pin head  (hence the blur) was next to the mature form. Dryad's saddle (Polyporus squamosus) is common in the woodlands at this time of year.
