FUNGUS OF THE MONTH

.Phaeolepiota aurea, always a delightful find, usually standing proudly in woodland edges in groups and up to 20 cm tall, with Birch and Oak. There is the only species in this genus, which used to be in the UK Red Data list but often returns to the same areas in Yorkshire. The photographs are from Seckar Wood, near Wakefield. I call it the "Golden Doorknob".
