Gliophorus graminicolor

A nice glutinous green one!

These can be very difficult to tell apart from the other green waxgill, Gliophorus viridis (see below).

Gliophorus viridis

Occasionally I find these growing on the forest floor, but more often they seem to be amongst mosses on very rotten logs, which makes them hard to spot.

The glutinous covering can appear to be very smooth, like G. graminicolor.

Although green in colour, these fungi are not photosynthetic - no fungi are.

Just to show you what the gills of G. viridis are like.
