Fungi in Oversley Wood

Oversley Wood is one mile south of Alcester, and was once part of the southern end of the Forest of Arden. I spent some time up there this morning taking pics of Fungi. I was particularly looking for Fly Agarics, but did not come across any. Maybe it is the wrong time of year?. I did manage to find these, I am really not sure of the IDs so any help would be really appreciated, but this is what I think they are. The top two pics are possibly False Chanterelle (Hygrophoropsis Durartiaca), the next one I think is Fairy Inkcap (Coprinus disseminatus) and the last two I am pretty sure are Magpie Inkcap (Coprinospsis Picacea).


  1. I love the pictures of the fungi on the old mossy tree branches, it complements the fungi colour perfectly.

  2. Lovely pictures, Colin, and beautifully lit. Like the previous writer, I do like to see the toadstools in clusters on old tree stumps and branches,
