Butterflies and Fungi September 25th


The Indian summer has brought out a late flush of Red Admirals and Commas feasting on aster and rotting fruit.


The woods at Dixter abound with fungi so I thought I would try and I.D. some. It’s tricky and I should be grateful for any help as I am a beginner!


Amethyst Deceiver (laccia amethystina), common in shady woods. An eye catching purple and some say edible.


A spectacular bracket fungus, possibly a Lenzites.


I think these little parasols are Mycenia galericulata.



Two types of Russula?, a large very diverse group varying from bright red to yellow. Any help gratefully received.
