New coral

Ramaria abietina is the first coral fungus to be recorded in the Park, so-called because they resemble marine corals. Corals are different from agarics and boletes in that the spores are on the external surface of the upper branches. R. abietina is a species found in woodlands and it becomes green as it ages or if bruised. These were in a cluster near a mature Eu. Viminalis on Woodland Walk – a part of the park that now has quite good leaf and bark litter.
