Tawny Funnel (2)
Comments(3) # Tawny Funnel (2) london e17

After showing you the Common Puffball and describing it as one of the Stomach fungi which have their spores enclosed within the body of the fungus, I realised we hadn't actually had a look at the underside of a more typical fungus. The vast majority of the fungal species that we might describe as mushrooms or toadstools have their spores borne on gills which hang beneath the fruiting body just like the Tawny Funnel we've climbed underneath here.
