Beechmast Candlesnuff fungus

We found the Beechmast Candlesnuff fungus (Xylaria carpophila) this morning at Calrossie. Heather found it below the leaf litter within 2 minutes of leaving the car and about 20 secs after starting to search! Photo attached.

Those who weren’t at Tuesday’s meeting can find info about this fungus on the HBRG website news page (http://www.hbrg.org.uk/Latest.html)
