|While in Switzerland in September 2006 taking part in the World Master Mountain Running Championships I ran past several of these signs which I went back and photographed the next day. They take their edible fungi seriously in Switzerland and three of the signs on the "Fungi route" are shown here. Most of the fungi in Switzerland are the same as in Wales although one of these is one that does not and that is is the Amanita Caesarea|
24th August 2006 while being driven back from the pub saw this in the headlights panicked the driver by shouting stop,
leapt out the car and picked this thinking it was a cep.
commonly known as Rooting Shank

Cortinarius croceus Growing in several small groups in needle litter at the side of our house.(16th October 2004)
Accidental Lepista Growing Does anyone grow these commercially? Well my wife has accidentally encouraged a very prolific colony of these fungi in both her greenhouses and also in her carrot store in the garage. The population in her largest greenhouse has been producing for over 2 months with more to come. More pictures
Mycena polygramma and hygrophoropsis aurantiaca (the false chanterelle)Coed Garth Gell 29th Sept 2003
Cortinarius rubellus aka speciosissimus aka orellanoidesNot often that I can identify a cortinarius with certainty but I'm fairly sure I've got this one right. There were eight of these in two small groups amongst beech and pine trees.

Initial layout of page changed. If you still want to look at fungi on treestumps every time you load this page then click on the appropriate html reference for an extended section. The top of the page will now contain only the most interesting or recent pictures.
Now I've grabbed your attention I shall bore you with a few details. This part of my web page is for displaying my own collection of Fungi pictures. A substantial part of the collection will be available for other collectors to download and use in non commercial purposes. The author reserves copyright for commercial uses. I also intend to respond to e.mail requests for pictures from my index by putting them on my web page within an appropriate time period
The author is not an expert mycologist and there will be the occasional mistake in identification. I am not going to spend my life looking down a microscope at the knobbly bits on spores but I am going to enjoy taking the pictures and providing a small amount of information to accompany each one. (Update... It looks like I will have to modify this statement and substitute the word not with the word occasionally) Viewers should e.mail meif they discover any obvious mistakes.
These are all jpg images mostly of about 25kb each

All pictures to 11th December 1998 were taken with a Casio QV-10C Digital Camera bought in early 1996 for £470. The camera holds up to 96 pictures but the author(and a business acquaintance) found the main drawback is the short lifetime of the batteries (4 AA size).
Pictures were transferred from the camera as *.cam files to the QV-PC software supplied with the camera. They were then saved as *.bmp files to Paint Shop Pro 3.11 The *.bmp files were opened within Paint Shop Pro and saved as *.jpg files to my home page directory and finally to the server. Unfortunately the camera software will not convert the *.cam files directly to *.jpg which would make life simpler. UPDATE I now have on order a Sony FV81 Mavica and keenly await being able to use it. UPDATE UPDATE New camera received Look at this!!
Fungi on StampsThe author also collects fungi on stamps. Approximately £120 per annum is enough to purchase all the new issues from around the world each year. A useful mycophilatelic link
