Cobalt Crust at Oxwich

Cobalt Crust Pulcherricium (Terana) caeruleum is a particularly striking fungus that is typically found on the underside of fallen logs and dead branches and therefore requires a little searching for. However, its appearance on the gatepost at the entrance to Oxwich Wood required no searching at all and provided a great opportunity for closer inspection in good light. It will be interesting to see how long the fungus persists for at this easy-to-monitor site.
