Grassland by East Bank Way 30-5-11
On the 30th of May, after there had been showers following days of good weather, I found a few mushrooms that are often found in the soil this time of year. Especially after a downpour. The photos above and below are of Panaeolina foenisecii. As can be seen, the caps and stems are dark reddish brown, this is because they are wet. When they dry, they will be creamy beige.
Also hidden the grass was Parasola plicatilis/ Pleated Inkcap, the photos below show show delicate this particular species is.
Growing in the same place as last year was Marasmius rotula/Collared Parachute. This mushroom is easy to identify by it's pleated cap and unusual stipe attachment to the stem. (See below),
