I love rummaging around piles of dead wood and tree stumps. I am not that good on fungi identification but I find them fascinating and you never quite know what you will find. This lovely green, brown and white one was new to me when I saw it for the first time on the Dorset Wildlife Trust reserve at Greenhill Down; quite appropriate, a green fungus on Greenhill Down? Thanks to my excellent field guide, the Collins Fungi Guide, I had it sewn up in no time; the Yellowing Curtain Crust (Sterium subtomentosum)!
This is described as an occasional species on rotting broad-leaved tree debris found mainly in the south east of England so it is right on the edge of its range here in Dorset then.
The flesh is leathery, tough, and hard when dry so I did not bother to take it home for breakfast.
