Parasites at Sherrards Park Wood

We had an enjoyable meeting at Sherrards Park Wood on 17 September,  where the highlight for me was seeing the 2 parasitic fungi on Russula  nigricans (Blackening brittlegill) - Asterophora parasitica (Silky piggyback) and Asterophora lycoperdoides (Powdery piggyback).   Alison took a great photo of the latter.
