The Dell


Day 1 – 15 September 2022

These Marasmius rotula had white caps, striated widely at the edges, with a dipped brownish apex.

The stem was 10–15mm tall and 1mm thick- a dark reddish colour, fading to black at the base.

They were trooping on soil or hidden wood debris in grassland, near ivy, holly, oak, beech, hazel, alder and hawthorn.

Most important of which was possibly a poplar, which the debris seemed to be from.
