Fungiworld - latest images

Last September 2010 I spent seven days in the Republic of Ireland.
Included on the website are photographs taken whilst walking around Killarney National Park, The Inch Peninsular and The Gap of Dunloe. 

It was a very special trip, not just for the fungi hunting but also an opportunity for me to savour the special magic of Ireland.  The weather was kind and we had very little rain.

I walked the length of the Inch Peninsular and found, much to my excitement,
Psathyrella ammophila and Hygrocybe conicoides in the sand dunes.

It is the first time I have ever seen fungi growing in sand, and it was both thrilling and fascinating.

Another exciting find was Lycoperdon mammiforme in Killarney National Park.

These pictures are now available to view on my website.
