Plums and Custard

Plum coloured with hints of custard yellow showing through so plums and custard is an apt nick-name for this fungi and an easy one to remember perhaps.

A very common species found on rotting wood, usually conifers, and often in small tufts or troops like these in my photograph. They are found in late summer and throughout the autumn.

Sadly, whilst plums and custard are tasty the fungi with that name is described as watery and acrid and smelling of rotten wood and so, although considered edible, best left alone perhaps.
