Returned to the spot where this fungi was located. Two small growths were found. I have added them to the file as I am sure they are the same specimens. A colour balance card is included for white balance and colour as a reference.

I photographed something similar (MO #83951) that was about that size. Beautiful - and apparently widespread!

Micrograph added.

Not sure if this micrograph gives away any secrets . See note attached.

Penny.

Sorry about missing measurements. Has been a busy period for me. Height =5cm (average.)
