Fungi Outer Hebrides

Phylum: Basidiomycota   Family: Pluteaceae

Pluteus salicinus  (Pers.) P. Kumm.

Willow Shield

First recorded on the Outer Hebrides in 2014 with very few highland records. The common name would suggest an affinity with Willow but it's just as likely to be found on any decaying deciduous wood
