Psathyrella candolleana Coprinaceae Pale Brittlestem

Psathyrella candolleana 28kb

Psathyrella candolleana Pale Brittlestem. Always growing in large clumps, this fungus is found on stumps of broad-leaved trees, on old rotting timber, or near this, in wooded areas. It is very common all around the Millennium Walk at the Reservoir. The caps are 3-8cm across, very pale to start with and darkening to mid-brown with age. The gills are greyish-brown when young, then become dray purple-black, like others in this family. It is edible, but not of much value in the kitchen.
