What a star

Pulling itself from under the dunes the other day was this Collared Earthstar – so alien these things … but so beautiful.

    It’s a type of fungus is it? Is it edible?

      It is a fungus Alistair yes. It is reputed to be inedible except when it is very young. However, as with most of these reputedly edible fungi I would guess if you tried a young one it would be quite tasteless.
