I love the abstract quality of some fungal features - the wrinkled hymenophore of Plicaturopsis crispa - this fungus seems to be getting a lot more frequent in Yorkshire - it was first recorded for the county as late as 1963.

Sarcoscypha austriaca - Scarlet Elfcup. - (Normal Red fruitbodies, and orange variation fruitbodies).

Must now be ten years or so that these orange variants have been appearing alongside the normal red fruitbodies at this site.
(To clarify, microscopy has previously been done, several times over several years, on both red and orange fruitbodies from this exact location, and samples have also been sent to Kew, where Dr Paul Cannon confirmed them as S.austriaca).

Yellow Fieldcap
Bolbitius titubans

A bit out of season perhaps but these never last very long so probably not seen a lot of the time?

Fantastic find (and photo), Adam.
Were these in Cornwall? - Or are they moving further "up country" these days?

Mike.

Nice one Adam.
Good to know that they are finding some more northerly sites.
Hopefully might get a chance to spot them in my neck of the woods someday!

I'm a bit cautious about whether it is a good thing.. we don't really consider whether we have the fungal equivalents of Japanese Knotweed.
I'm reading a recent paper that considers this a species complex. I understand hardly any of the paper but it does have a handy key. It's one of those case where the species can be identified easily by amateur mycologists.
