There is a beautiful group of Grey Knight fungi under the pines.
Their scientific name is Tricholoma terreum. They are growing on a grassy bank on the main local industrial estate.
Tricholoma means hairy hill. Terreum means ‘of the earth’. They are hairy earth hills.
I love their fleecy caps
They are growing gregariously.
I’ve not had too many strange looks from passers-by. A chap on his lunch break takes an interest and even points out another species further up. Fascinating, aren’t they?
