The Fungi World (404) : Amethyst Deceiver
Late autumn. It’s getting gradually darker and colder in the forest, but there are still fungi growing there.
The party ain’t over yet……. :-))
The amethyst deceiver is a small fungus with a cap and stem that fades from lilac-violet to brownish with aging.
Its striking colour and slender appearance makes him the 'glamour boy' among the fungi..... :-))
This species usually grows under beech or oaks and can be found from late summer to early winter.
