It can definitely be found at altitude; that's where I spotted mine too.

I was lucky then! My mistake was that I was checking out mountain flowers because that's where I found it...

Well this is one of my favourite wild European flowers! I'm afraid I'm not very good with fungi: without research I'll only recognize the best known poisonous or edible ones, but I'll have a quick look at your gallery...

Thanks a lot for help! Daniele, how do you do it? :) Could you help me ID my mysterious fungus?

Hayde, for your comparison here is my spotting of Parnassia palustris. I think this is your flower:

It can bloom in the autumn as well, if the temperature is still high. However, I was checking the pictures again and I am not 100% sure about the ID because it is a wild flower, and pictures on the web are mostly of those raised in the garden.

Hayde, are you sure this is black hellebore? It looks like Parnassia palustris to me. Did you see the leaves?

You say this usually blooms in winter. You have the date spotted as today. Did you see it today?
