Wood hedgehog Hydnum repandum


We found a troupe of wood hedgehogs in Chessington's greenbelt. They are found in December so one of the later fruits of the forest and have 'teeth' rather than gills. This species is not common within the Greater London boundary. 

There is an increase in the number of commercial foragers. They have little expertise in identifying fungi, but take everything they find in an activity where  - chef takes the best and throws away the rest- I cannot divulge the location of this edible species.
