Woman foraging in Wales finds very rare mushroom

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A forager has found a mushroom so rare that she will not share its location for fear of it being damaged.

Chloe Newcomb Hodgetts, from Monmouthshire, believes she has found a rare tiered tooth fungus (hericium cirrhatum).

The 41-year-old described it as a "once-in-a-lifetime find".

Mark Steer of the Glamorgan Fungus Group said it was "fairly likely" Chloe's photographs showed a tiered tooth fungus.

He added: "This is a species which seems to be fairly uncommon with only 25 records that I can find for the whole of Wales."
