I wrote a post about the Egghead Mottlegill in 2013. I was in Angus Scotland and it was my first sighting. I was struck by its simple beauty - clay coloured, the egg-shaped cap and the shiny, somewhat, creased texture. This mushroom is usually found in or near dung. This past weekend I was out walking and came across some superb examples of this mushroom and this time in England rather than Scotland! In this post I have included some photographs below of it growing in its various stages.
