I saw on the news app that was spotted on the Llyn. I have some in my coastal garden near Conwy, found early October, still alive.

An important grassland species certainly but I don't think this is classified as a waxcap. It's a different family.

LOADS round us in ,. Some are smaller, and plenty are missing the distinctive white cap scales. I properly love these fungi, so easy to spot and sooo much fun to illustrate!

We are introducing one waxcap fungi every day this week as part of our Wales . The fourth is the honey waxcap. The honey waxcap is a vibrant, highland species. The name comes not from the colour but from the odour that it gives off when rubbed or drying!

The third waxcap of our Wales is the distinctive olive earthtongue. It is threatened in Wales due to intensifying agriculture demands and is found in only a handful of sites. Fortunately it's the target of education and awareness programmes to help revive the species.

The second fungi of our Wales is the Snowy Waxcap. It is one of the only 'common' waxcaps found in England and Wales as it can tolerate a little artificial fertiliser. Any previously treated lawn mown regularly can expect to produce them within 5-10 years!

We are introducing you to one waxcap fungi a day this week as part of our Wales . The first is the Scarlet Waxcap. This beautiful waxcap is often found in unfertilised grassland / meadows / roadsides. It is edible but we suggest admiring and photographing it instead!
