Orange Peel Fungus (Aleuria aurantia)
Orange Peel Fungus (Aleuria aurantia)
This fungus prefers disturbed ground, and requires sunlight to produce the red pigment. There are several small specimens growing on the side of the new gravel path alongside the Craig fishing beats. As it matures its shape will become much more complex and contorted. This fungus is edible and said by some to be good when cooked. Others maintain that it is not particularly tasty and really only useful to add colour to salads.
