Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare) on log
Sulphur Tuft fungi (Hypholoma fasciculare) are common and widespread and often grow in exuberantly large clumps such as this. Their appearance can vary considerably and changes with age, but generally look for a yellowish cap (often quoted as sulphur yellow, but often much lighter in reality) shading to brown in the centre of the cap. The stipes (stems) range from yellow to greenish, and often curve to achieve the vertical from whatever position they emerge from the log that is their host. They are considered poisonous or suspicious, but are not deadly - but should of course not be eaten.
They are an attractive sight clustered amongst the mossy rotting logs of the forest/wood floor.
