Looking back in my photo archive of curious and wonderful fungi I find photographs of Tricholomopsis rutilans, Plums and Custard:
According to my guidebooks they form very photogenic clumps. It’s a shame I haven’t found any photogenic ones; just single, old or half-eaten ones. This one was in Pullabrook Woods on Dartmoor:
I love their purple and yellow colour scheme.
These were in the grounds of Exeter University:
It’s a shame they’re not edible; at least not to humans.

What a fabulous fungus.
