Oh okay, I see. Well they are beautiful, your shots show this really clearly.

Because I never spotted them around here for years. (And I did work right in the woods)...since fungi need very special climate conditions to grow specificly, it looks like a climate change - and for me this is not a good sign, although the fungi look beautiful.

Wonderful find Lars, and why do you say it's a sign of bad climate change?

Yes, Dan - as I said for the other spottings, I never noticed them much around here all the years. Now they seem to have become common. Looks unfortunately like a bad sign of climate change....

You seem to have good luck finding these Lars. Wiki says they are largely distributed in tropical and temperate regions. I wonder if they are found around southern Ontario.
