The Living World
Despite the cooler weather, fungi are still going strong and the constant flow of fungi photos to our BBC Wales Nature Flickr group is testament to that.
A scientist has just discovered a rare fungi living in a Worcestershire garden - the powdercap strangler.
Only found in a handful of locations around the UK, this parasitic fungus is actually an outgrowth, or gall on another fungus - the earthy powdercap (Cystoderma amiathinum).
I recently blogged about a fungi experience I had when I was lucky enough to be part of the audience for the BBC Radio 4 programme, The Living World - recorded at the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
You can currently listen again to this programme all about fungi and waxcap grasslands on BBC i-Player.
