Found a large group of  in Teazle Wood today – perfect, white and clean, these look like they should be delicious but are poisonous 😦 Here’s one (not our photo). Scraping the base of the stem reveals a strong yellow colour – the common name is ‘yellow stainer’. We are looking forward to seeing the second list of Teazle Wood fungi, which this time is being created by Dr. Brian Spooner, Head of Mycology at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, who was in the wood today with members of the Surrey Fungus Study Group. How lucky we are to have the voluntary expertise of people like Brian and David and their colleagues. Thank you to all of them.white fungi lying on grass
