Spring fungi identification

Keep your eyes peeled for fantastic fungi.

Fungi can pop up at any time of year – can you find these spring specimens? They grow on or around dead and decaying wood.

  • Look carefully – some fungi are tiny!
  • Not all fungi are mushrooms – some are bracket fungi and some are jelly-like
  • Remember, never touch fungi – some can be very poisonous!

Fungi are hidden beneath the ground most of the time, but they usually appear above ground after rain.
