St. George's Mushroom

Post by chrisjohnson » 19 May 2014, 17:53

Calocybe gambosa, commonly known as St. George's mushroom, is nationally common. However, I have never seen it here and when checking the national database for records could only find two, both vague and unacceptable without further information.

Bill Neill reported it from his garden earlier this month, and yesterday we found three separate rings or partial rings on the range machair. Well worth keeping a lookout for as it can continue fruiting into June.
