14 Mar 2020

A species of Panaeolus that appears to be one not recorded in the area before, therefore a new species. It is not one I've seen before.

Author's notes

Tiny fungi growing in clusters, starting as tiny brown buds and developing into small yellow and brown caps. Largest cap measuring approximately 1 cm. Underside very dark gills in comparison with the top.

What a gorgeous little 'dung fungus'. The genus Panaeolus, or mottle gills, are found growing on dung and as you have shown when you turned one over their gills are darkened by the maturing spores. When you look closely at the gills you can see the dark is 'mottled' and not an even colour. This is a species I have never seen before. Great recording.
