Black Tooth, Yellow Brain and Bitter Oysterling

Black Tooth, Phellodon niger
On Thursday I met  Mark at a West Sussex site to search a woodland area for a Black Tooth fungus. We had the coordinates and managed to find it, though it looked rather sad. We will return next Autumn when it will be fresh. I also found Yellow Brain and Bitter Oysterling, plus Usnea lichen and Haircap Moss. There were some very large Common Earthballs.
