As this blog wrote earlier: ’13 November 2017. The day after 12 November. Our last full day in the Veluwe region. We went to the Kootwijkerzand sandy plain.’ Sorry for the photos of that day coming so late. Like this one, of rare Clavaria argillacea fungi growing in a patch of heather amidst the sand.

Omphalotus olearius is a POISONOUS orange gilled mushroom that to an untrained eye appears similar to some chanterelles. It is notable for its bioluminescent properties. It is found in woodland areas in Europe, where it grows on decaying stumps, buried roots or at the base of hardwood trees. Omphalotus olearius and other Omphalotus species contains the toxin illudin S, and are poisonous to humans. While not lethal, consuming this mushroom leads to very severe cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea.
