This is the second sighting of this luminous fungus in the last week or so. It seems to have been an unusually long season for this species. Did you get a chance to see it at night when it was 'glowing', a character that has given it the common name of 'ghost fungus'?!

Thanks Pam. I'm going to have a look tonight to see if it is glowing.
