This fungus is one of the weirdest I have come across in a while. It is tough and leathery and feels like skin to the touch. It is growing flat on the ground on a path by the water tanks. It gets trodden on every day but doesn't appear to mind. It is currently about 30 centimetres across and still growing.
These tiny fungus are about the size of your fingernail, cherry red and have a beautiful lipstick gloss. They came up only once a few years ago and I have never seen them since. Obviously we would not dream of ever eating any of these fungus- the odds of a horrific death are all too high. But they are certainly beautiful.
