In September last year, during the Bath Nats meeting at Chew Valley Lake, we came across Alder Bolete (Gyrodon lividus), a red data list fungus seldom recorded in the UK. Yesterday (28/9/2015), we took advantage of a lovely, sunny afternoon to amble along the lakeside and see if we could find it again. We did. Here are some photographs, showing the distinctive features of the fungus.
