Netted Rhodotus

Monday Mushroom #37

I was very excited to find this beautiful little mushroom last weekend. It is one of those fungi that are instantly recogniseable just from having seen photos of them while leafing through mushroom books. Netted rhodotus is a specialist on rotting elm wood - it became quite common at the height of the dutch elm disease epidemic a few decades ago, but has now reverted to being pretty rare.
