Fungi Horde:

Hello all,

I received a call from a Chester resident regarding an interesting blue fungus she had found on a housing estate just outside Chester City Centre. She felt they may be noteworthy and wanted someone to go and have a look.

I went over this morning on my way into work and was a little surprised at what I found. Not so much for the rare species, but the sheer quantity of species under a single hornbeam in one isolated area.

Below are some images I took with my phone - so not great I'm afraid.

Can I ask for assistance with the ID's please and could you let me know whether this is a noteworthy haul?

The Bolete, I thought might be Birch Bolete as it was under hornbeam?! However the colour underneath the cap was brown and not milky like the birch seems to be?

Thanks,

Eric

Some more images of a selection of the species from this morning (see below).

Hopefully these are better pictures and show a little more of the relevant info.

Thanks,

Eric
